Went to help a workmate jump start his car and opened my bonnet to find a rat scurry away leaving one smelly brown thing and a chewed wiring cover on the o2 sensor. Wire was fine 2 days ago when checking my oil level so guessing it moved in last night and stayed there even when I'd been driving about before my workmate called me for help. My mate breaking down actually done me a favour as who knows how long it would of been in there before i noticed and chewed its way though everything.
Anybody any tips to deter them from wanting to go in on the first place?

I had a mouse running around mine for a few days a couple of years ago. A mouse trap in the car for a couple of days sorted it out!

Thankfully no wiring damage.

Thing is i like rats but not enough to let them damage my stuff. This one left as soon as i found it, would rather find a way of stopping them wanting to get in
