Default There's a rat in my Scooby what am I gonna Doo

I recently discovered a rats nest in my engine bay, and the little buggers have eaten a hole in the engine bonnet guard, they also seem to have bitten through a steel wire which I believe has something to do with the Air Con system, as it no longer blows cold air, I am after some advise as to what I need to replace to fix the problem, I have included some photos of the engine bay. Thanks for any advise.

It was on my drive waiting for a new clutch to be fitted, so hadn't been driven for a few days, and I went to check the oil & water and found that inside.

A/C magnetic clutch on the compressor feed.



PAS pump oil pressure switch feed - damage appears to be on engine loom side (wire colour Red/yellow)

Thanks Don, I got a mate who is a mechanic looking at it over the weekend, any ideas what parts I would need to order to get it sorted.

Someone who can use a soldering iron is required.
2 sections of suitable wire to replace those chewed, unless more not shown in your pictures was also chewed.
You may need to search under the inlet manifold for the other end of the PAS pump pressure sensor wire where it enters the main engine loom.
