because I believe an animal has died behind my glovebox area. I can hear an odd noise when I turn on the heat/defrost and now there is rather an unpleasant odor. I have a 1993 small Toyota truck.
Oy. You’ll likely have to remove the glove compartment to access the heating ducts. It’s probably a mouse.
This is not a cheap job unless you can do the work yourself. I can near guarantee the smell will never go away with deodorant.
I’d take out the blower motor, which is under the dash on the pass. side, and look around-- if it’s making a wierd noise, the problem is probably near the blower motor. Could it be a burning electical smell?
