For a few days recently, whilst stationary, there's been a very odd pong in the MINI. (And no, it's not the driver! Very Happy )

It put me in mind of a bit of Skynyrd....




Something in the engine? Maybe.

Brakes? Could be.

Walking past the car on the drive today (Sat.), I smelt it again. Yuk. WTH is this thing?

Ahhhhh!!! Found it, but before I tell ye, who's going to guess and get it correct?*



*No prizes. Judges decision final and binding. E&OE.

I did hear of a story once that a cat had been regularly spraying a car wheel & over time it started to pong a bit when the discs got hot brilliant !

Years ago I had a horrid smell for ages in my classic daily drive. I took it to several places and in the end I found a pack of pork chops that were 4 months out of date and gone down behind the spare wheel well. It was alive and the smell horrendous. They must have fallen out a shopping bag. I since tied the ears of all carrier bags.

Here you go!

A lousy old lump of pink bubble-wrap caught on the exhaust pipe. Pipe gets hot, plastic melts and gets very smelly.


Ewwww, that smell! Carpla10

Once I found it I removed the majority of it, and the rest shall slowly melt and burn away.
