Mhopper, I totally understand the "critter" thing as in mice and chipmunks. Mine was kept in a shed/garage before me buying it and the rodents made nests in my air intate for the vents and under the driver's side foot rest. I'm still blowing out house insulation from the vents from time to time when switching between defrost, vents, and heater. I also found a wad of snake skins inside the rear console between the seats. The perfect slithery home, lunch served upfront and condos in the rear. LOL Use caution when using the air conditioning, etc. I spent several trips down the road with the top down and the blower on high trying to blow most of it out. Good luck. Again, fantastic find.
