To answer your question, if the dead mouse is on the downstream side of the heater core/AC evaporator but out or reach than about all you can do is wait for the decomposition to become complete. Maybe try running the blower on high while spraying Clorox solution down the defrost slots and then into the slot where the cabin air filter goes while the blower is on high. Of course, change the cabin air filter too.
this is not just to get rid of the smell, but also to preclude the small, but non-zero possibility of the deadly hantavirus carried by wild wood-mice (white-footed and deer mice) - specifically their droppings and urine residue. The Monongahela variant of this virus has killed people in my area (West Virginia and W. Pennsylvania)
