As you have tried all things, trying the tip provided by Mr Adil seems to work out for you.

You have to see where the rat is bitting regularly and then you have to keep rat poision cake at that place . If you succed killing 1 rat then in future you will never face this issue ..... Or try to buy the gum type floor mats which is used to catch the rats which are getting entry in the cars .. It will surely help u . It is pretty costly but very effective

I have tried with various types of powerful rat poisons, changed the parking positions/locations frequently, filled gap areas with bottle cleaner brushes in bonnet however could not control rats entering to car bonnet.
Finally succeeded with below two options.
1. Keep trap boxes under car(near front tyres) in one to two places, trap them and leave them 2KM's far from your house (killing is another option but I never did and do not suggest to kill, it's up to you)
2. Buy Tobacco bars (Tambaku) which will cost around Rs.10 (in Bangalore) and keep it in under bonnet(or wherever is required) in 3 to 4 places. After putting tobacco I have parked my car around 30 days continuously and rats did not enter into my car(was surprised and very happy). I see roaming rats around my compound but did not enter into my car because of Tobacco strong smell.
First approach is time consuming but second approach cheap and less time to control rats in easy way and works like a charm.

tecting cars from the RAT menace - Autoshine (Mumbai)
For car owners who's cars are always parked in the open including mine have a constant problem of rats chewing the wires inside the engine bay. To me running back and forth to the workshop was becoming a headache and also trying out local remedies like tying tobacco pouches, getting diesel wash done every now and then was not solving the problem. Despite of doing all these the rats still were happy chewing on wires. Once fine morning two week I was generally discussing this issue with my car detailer Parag bhai from Autoshine (kandivali -Mumbai) and he told me to try out some spray which would deter rats from even coming close to the car engine bay. Without wasting any time I took my car to his place the very next day and got my engine bay sprayed with the recommended liquid. Since then I havent had the problem and even when I open the hood to check for any chocolate/biscuit packets or some fruit remains I dont find any. Previously the rats used to leave behind some or the other left over stuff inside the hood.

So I recommend you guys to get it done. I will post a review again in a few weeks to update if the rats have finally said a goodbye to my cars or not .

RAT teeth grows like our finger nails and it needs to constantly trim it. so it chews the cable to file(trim) the teeth.
Drop some waste clutch cables below the car / drainage / vacant plot etc, it will likely use that one to file(trim) its tooth and spare the car.

Rats are dangerous for cars.
Recently, I had a very bad experience with rats attacking my car. My car was not getting started after keeping it idle for a month, as I had to travel for a business purpose. I realized that petrol has been spread under my car. Luckily there was no spark generated while trying to ignite the engine.The car service people came to the spot and identified that it was caused due to chewing the fuel tube by a rat.
After some research on the internet, I bought the rat repellent product called No-Entry from Nichem.Solutions. Just sprayed in the engine compartment and has not noticed any signs of rats so far.
You could also try the same. Check at
