Default Dead critter in 2001 Honda CRV heater blower?

I have a dead animal (chipmunk?) that got into my '01 Honda CRV heater blower. I suspect that after having some front end damage repaired, the body shop didn't replace a part on the ventilation fresh air inlet, and an animal got in somehow? What I need to know is whether I can access and remove the blower fan- and the animal from under the dash where the cabin filter is, or do I need to perform some sort of major surgery from the inlet side? In this oppressive heat we're having, this rotting thing is unbearable. By the way, I can hear the blower fan hitting the animal when I turn it to high. Yuck!

By the way, where exactly is the fresh air inlet located- under the hood? Or is the inlet at the bottom of the windshield? If that's the case, the critter might have gotten into the blower from the inside, which might make it easier to remove him. Thanks for everyone's help.

I think you need a factory service manual to know exactly how to go about this job.TRy this site it may have the original service manual free to download.It does have a manual listed on its site if you scroll down the pg.Here's the link.

Hope that helps and best of luck.
