.......... I had a rat in the serpentine belt all wrapped up and had thrown off the belt. After prying him and the belt off I went on the quest to replace the belt as it had been compromised by being thrown. Tough to find the belt-nobody has them-even Subaru as the car was so new. The dealer asked why I was replacing it and how many miles were on the car? I just showed him the pictures.
Your story sort of reminds me of when I had my woodworking shop in the barn/garage while we were restoring an 1880's farmhouse. I hadn't used the 12" two wheel band saw in a few weeks, and apparently a family of mice thought it would be great to build a nest in the upper wheel. Can you picture the scene when I placed a nice piece of wood on the table and turned the darn thing on? Yes, hot and cold running mice parts! After my shower and a day of cleaning, all was right again.... yuk
