Just build a small house for the rats. They are mammals just like us and have families to feed and cloth, they also need shelter which is why they use you car.
Seriously ?

I heard they could cause serious electrical issues by eating the car wiring.
Reason why I am bothered.

Buy charcoal and place it at strategic points in the car. Rats can smell the charcoal and will be fooled into thinking that the place is burning.

They will not return. I had a similar issue last year while in Nigeria. I saw a post here and did the same thing.

Charcoal helps alot... You can try it ... Just have them changed regularly. The burnt smell of the charcoal is a turn off for rats.

Change your parking space! You can’t park your car for long without sharing the comfort of the car with rats!

In most cases, they access your engine by climbing through your front tyre.
I used rat gum when I experienced the same and it worked. Placed 1 around the engine and 2 beside each front tyres.
