Spiders and snakes, squirrels and cats, and of course the common field mouse, sometimes our vehicles become the unintended habitat for wildlife. MACS member Gary Malanga, training Manager for STS Tire and Auto headquartered in New Jersey shared with us some photos of his uninvited guests. Gary explains, “These pictures were taken back in 2006. I had an old 1986 Chevy K-30 pickup truck that I used to plow my driveway. The truck would sit in the yard at times for several months without being started. Every year after thanksgiving I would get the truck ready for the snow season. One day, as I opened the hood and saw the straw coming out of the air cleaner snorkel I knew what it was.”
When having your mobile A/C system professionally serviced, insist on proper repair procedures and quality replacement parts. Insist on recovery and recycling so that refrigerant can be reused and not released into the atmosphere.
