Angry Check under your engine covers! - 04-19-2014, 01:48 PM

Took the engine cover off to install my BMS oil thermostat and to generally check up on things, and found a mouse nest between the coils!!! The little bastard even chewed the wires to the injector. Luckily I was able to re-insulate them and there had been no short. Even more lucky I didn't find a dead mouse up there! How did it even fit in there? With the cover on and the insulation it's pretty much sealed. Definitely check under there this spring!

Was the car sitting up for a while? or maybe the mouse was intelligent enough to await your arrival in the evenings and went to bed.
