    you have to take the cowl panel from under the windshield off, the intake will be right above where the filter is

    and they can also get in from inside the car. You can't really keep mice out of anything. Screen it off and they might chew. Best thing to do is not leave the mc donalds bag in there... but if you live in a cold climate, there's a chance they will try to get in.

    Once found a mole jammed up in the exhaust valve of my BMW moto. had a mouse chew through an air filter to live in my intake manifold. Crazy. Never mind the annual taking the car out of winter storage and removing blower motor to get the nests out before you turn on the fan.

    You'd have to do more than raise the hood probably, without looking.
