Ha, good job you found the little critter sooner rather than later Chris! he could have made a right mess in there and nibbled through things!

Might be worth placing a bit of poison around the four corners of the garage - or get a cat!

I’ve got an ultrasonic mouse deterrent plugged into the mains socket in the garage, and conventional mouse traps around the garage. Has been successful for last two years. (No mice in traps or garage).

Assuming you have a garage with power source.

I have one of those ultrasonic devices in my garage as well. I often catch mice in the trap about two feet away from it...... maybe some mice are tone deaf! Very Happy

You where lucky, the can cause £.000’s of damage if they use the wiring insulation for bedding stripping it from the wires. Can even cause a car fire / short.

Mouse traps and plenty of them Thumb

Chris .. just check the foam panel behind the battery which the heater pipes go through isnt damaged .. mice chew through that and get into the car ..

It will leak water if it is damaged .

Just be grateful you have a 997 not a 991, newer model has cable insulation made from soy derived eco products, vermin love to chew on them

I had the same after leaving my car for a while.

Keep a mouse trap in the frunk just in case, when you are not using it for long periods.

Don't waste your money on these electronic repellers - they're useless. There's a reason pest control professionals (my company) don't use them. Your garage is probably well sealed which is keeping mice out.
