Rat in my a/c

Yeah, the title pretty much describes my problem.
There were rats in the truck (i just got it to drive as a work truck bc nobody else was driving it) but yeah theres like pieces of a nest or something up in there somplace i guess.

Is there any easy way to get a hose down in there to suck it out yall think?
Or is the dash gonna have to come off er what?

anything is great.
and sorry this was my first post, i looked around for a while but coudlnt really figure out what to search to get the answer im looking for. And i would like heat, since im a diver and the water is 44 degrees hah

if its in the heater box. you gotta pull the dash. i am pretty sure you can't access it from the backside of the dash.

you should be able to pull the blower motor off and suck most of the nest out i had to do it to my 96 and found that was the easiest way

Its super easy to pull the blower motor/a/c drier evap box off the back of the firewall. its like 4-6 bolts and you can get to the blower motor obviously and a/c evap/drier and partially into the ducting from the back. The only thing is is you might have to disconnect the a/c lines which would let all the charge out of the system:(

close all the vents and turn the heat on high, problem solved.

^ thats if theres still rats in there..

but if there aren't anymore, then open all the vents and turn the air on high, and it'll be like confetti.
