Been there.
I had chipmunks fill up the air cleaner with nesting stuff, chew through the air filter and destroy the MAF sensor on a Ford F-350.
They also filled up the air cleaner on my Subaru, but couldn't get through the filter so all it took was cleaning it out to fix.
So far the 2018 Accord has been free of nesting chipmunks.

So your fix/remedy isn't something the average person would be able to access? I guess what is confusing me is (I believe) the pictures you are showing are well into the repair/disassembly to correct the issue.... I'm feeling like I walked into the middle of the movie. :)

Ok, thanks. That explains how to get to the first picture of seeing the vent you're speaking of... and you mentioned in one of your previous posts that they get to this point via a drain... where is this said drain at? when I think of a drain in my mind I'm thinking of a small diameter hose. If this drain is more than what I'm thinking of I guess putting some kind of mesh as you've installed on the vent on the drain discharge would create more problems by not letting water drain out as debris would probably gather block it. I'm thinking even if they don't get into the car if they get into the area under the cowl they can still nest and the smell would still be able to get into the car.... maybe I'm just overthinking. :unsure:

Your link isn't working. ?

Is it one of these found on this page - Loraffe Under Hood Animal Repeller
Sorry it didn't work but yes they are the ones. Mine has a high pitch noise every few minutes and a series of led lights that blink rapidly. I hooked mine up near the batter and ran the wires directly to the + & - on the battery. Easy to hook up. So far no noticeable drain on the battery.

Thanks for the info.
