    That's going to start kicking up nicely in the warm weather and pressed against the radiator.

    You don't keep your car in the garage do you? Maggots and then flies....

    Is there something you can remove in the engine bay and go in from the too?

    You need to get to it from underneath via the engine bay underskirt which is held in place by 2 or 3 screws

    I had a bird die in my wife's old civic. It was right near the grill, caught in some piping. Bottom tray of civic meant I couldn't just poke it through to the floor. I used a vacumn cleaner to 'grab it' (as too tight to get my hand in), and navigated it out, and then switched off the vacumn cleaner to drop it into the bin. Worked a treat
