Stupid mice!!!!!

http://gallery.me.com/iphone/riceaddictboy/100017#0
Ugh! F'n mouse!! I already replaced the insulator on the engine once... Now it's the back insulator!!?! The Chevy guys told me to relax and not worry about it as there was no damage to the wires and etc. They said they just went in there to be warm.

What do you guys think? Should I spend money and replace it ASAP? or are the Chevy guys telling me the truth and it's not a huge deal?

Not a big deal, get a cat or some mouse traps, or lace some cheese with lye...it's all good.'

Did you see the photo? Should I replace that insulator asap? Can anyone explain to me the purpose besides heat? Thankfully they didn't chew the wires...

Saw the photo

I really wouldn't worry about it, if this is a daily driver and not a dd and show car, I'd take care of the rodents first. If it's a dd and show car, then I'd take care of the rodents, then repair the insulation. If they aren't chewing the wires, then it's fine, if they are chewing the wires, then it's time to get Rambo on some rodents

I've heard that dryer sheets keep the rodents out of the cars.

He is an American Bulldog (small version). Though I keep telling my wife we should just call him a "punkass"!!
