Heater box help

Ok. Not sure if I have to actually get into the heater box or not but here is my delima.

'07 Ranger FX4

I think I might have mice in my '07. I removed a nest from between the fire blanket and the hood and also from inside the air intake box. I got a smell in the truck and I think it might be mouse nest smell. All I can think of is that there might be a nest in the heater box or somewere in line from outside to the air being blown inside. I do not get the tell tail sign of acorns and crap blowing out of the heater vents but there is a smell. I also want to wire mesh areas to try to keep anything out after I am done. I wire netted the air box in attempts to keep them out of the air box.

From what I have been reading anything newer than 94 or 95 requires the entire dash to be removed and than some good contorshinist to get some bolts behinds the engine.

Is there a simpler way to get into the box? I also don't want to deal with disconnecting the heater core and coolant head ache that comes with it.

might not be in the box itself...ive seen them get into the fan assembly already...that in itself isnt hard to remove...i think its just a matter of dropping the glovebox id check there too
