Really? It’s not been a good past 9 days. I got stuck in Winnipeg, hospitalized for some extremely painful stuff (not serious) and now this. My hood liner appears to be full of baby and/or dead rats.

So my ultra clean Fiesta is now all covered in shit and piss. And there are 100% living rats in the liner. I stepped on one accidently.

So, I used a flashlight to check my wiring. Seems all good. I bagged up the alternator/fusebox/dipstick and sprayed down my engine bay.


My questions are: Will my stripes melt without the liner to protect them? Did I even need a liner? What should I look for in terms of rat damage.

This has to have been while I was in Winnipeg.  I just changed the oil two weeks ago.
