Question about 1999 Ford Ranger SuperCab

1 Answer

Where is the heater intake located

My daughter had mice getting into her 1999 ext cab ranger and I cannot locate the entrance point. There are absolutely no holes in the cab anywhere. They must be coming into the heater/air cond box thru the intake.

    We have been trapping and relocating. Daughter is not going to let me poison although I do in my shop caus I'm tired of them in my tool boxes. I think I need to get some 1/4" hardware cloth over the inlet somehow. They came in cause she keeps peanuts in the truck for her pup. He loves them - so do mice

A mouse can get in though a gap as small as a cheap Biro pen. Best thing is to put traps or poison inside the cab, the engine, and on the hood near the windshield at night. The vent is there.

    I have filled every hole and crack with wire and panel adhesive and used a ultrosonic sound generator and detector. I figure it has to be the heater box. Thanks

    Grain poison blocks are the best answer. Or chocolate wired to a trap. Humane traps as well, and then take them for a long drive. They are coming indoors as the colder weather comes.

    Yeah she is not going to let me poison them even though I do in my shop cause I am tired of them in my tool box drawers. We have been live trapping and relocating. She has peanuts in the truck for her dog, he loves them - so do mice. I need to get some 1/4" hardware cloth over that intake somehow.

    Se if you can get some perforated zinc sheet. They will chew through anything else, and get through anything that is a 1/4" or 'fabric'.

    1/4 Hardware cloth is galv coated steel screen with 1/4 holes before galvanizing so a little over 3/16 inch holes. Stops mice, chipmonks, squirrels, even raccoons. Thanks
