Mouse smell in defroster vents

Bad mouse smell coming from defroster vents. Any ideas where to look for nest or dead mouse? Would it be in the fan housing?

Is there a such thing as a good mouse smell? (ha ha)

One place to consider is down where the wiper mechanism lives. It would possibly be accessible (to a mouse) from the tubes running down to the transmission area.

Here's a thread on accessing that area, which can accumulate debris. The rubber elephant nose drains are probably too small for a mouse.
