I'm wondering how did the rodents get inside of my car (literally above the cabin air-filter and blower motor, where it is blocked off by many thick hard plastics and such). Is there any holes or such under the car that the A/C vents out to the atmosphere?

I know this is old but I just had the same problem. They get in to the vent system where the hood hinges are (open your hood you'll see a 1/2"x 1" piece of rubber), there is a small piece of rubber that stops anything from getting into the vents.

Will never forget driving one day about 5 minutes from where I left my house in my old Civic and a mouse came from under my hood and halfway up my windshield. Nearly crashed the car! Never saw one again after.
