Mice In Subaru

Asked by Jul 12, 2018 at 04:22 PM about the 2010 Subaru Forester

Question type: General

For a few years now, I've had mice in my Forester. It's clean...no food items in car. We've tried everything, new filters, peppermint oil, mice poison pellets....you name it we've tried it. Subaru service says they are coming in from the front air hose/filter. But that they don't know how to stop it from happening. We've changed the filter several times, doused it with peppermint oil, etc. We did see they are coming in through the glove box. I'm so tired of having to clean my entire car every time I drive it. It happens winter, spring, summer, and fall. We live on 20 acres, so yes, there are mice around, but there should be some way to stop this. Subarus are supposed to be the rugged outdoor elements cars, right?

Mice can infest any car. How about a cat in the garage?

Remove the glove box like you would if changing the cabin air filter. You will see holes above the filter. You could block the holes but the mice will build nests on top of the filter.
