The smell is like the smell of 'araldite glue' or 'bodyfiller'
The occasions when this smell occurs appears to be consistent with 'stopping the car' and so far I've noticed the smell at the following times, but not always??
- Reversing into my driveway, after pulling up and stopping outside my house
- Pulling up at a roundabout
Previously, on or around other cars I've smelt 'hot brakes' or clutch burn and this doesn't smell like that kind of smell??
When this happens at home I get out of the car and 'sniff around' to see if I can smell where it's coming from, no joy so far!
I've checked under the bonnet - no smell
I've checked the wheel arches - no smell or 'heat' from the brakes
I've even briefly sniffed near the 'exhaust' - no smell (only normal car fumes)
Any ideas appreciated, hopefully I can find the source of this smell before something breaks or burns out!!
