Happy Spring Everyone!
So I got the Caprice reg and inspected yesterday. All was good. This morning I decided to take her to work so I went out and warmed it up before I left. When I turned the heater on I heard a bunch of shit rattling around and then a bad vibration like the was something substantial in the fan motor. Probably a dead chipmunk. How much of a pain in the ass is it to get it apart and cleaned out. I haven't been in there yet. Thanks in advance for any advice/help. See you all soon, and happy motoring Cool

Easy.....under the dash, behind glove box area, you will easily see it.  Three screws and out it comes.

Three 7mm screws, plug, and it's out. Mine was filled with the grey sound deadener in my green 9c1. Came out easy enough. Just the nest, no creatures. But it sounded like a Mustang smashing into a crowd of people. Very annoying.

I just had to do this on the SS. This was a bad winter for everyone as far as meeses apparently...been hearing about problems with all kinda of cars. I noticed this time they seem to be jamming those maple tree helicopter things [maple keys] into weird places and eating the seeds on the end. I found them in the old Impala hood...in the fuse box under the hood of the Tahoe, on the SS engine...They were screwing around in every vehicle I own except the Astro ...and they somehow got into the attic where I live.

The suckiest part really is being on your back with your head under the dash trying to reach it..moreso with no paved area to park...otherwise it's not hard
