Slight Electrical burning smell

Post by Zedman » Tue Jun 11, 2019 10:17 am

I did a search on the forum and can't find anything relative to my issue.
Had my car serviced last week and since then, intermittently I am getting a slight electrical smell inside the car. I have opened the bonnet and cant detect anything in the engine bay area. Everything seems to be operating normal, could it be the replacement pollen filter fitted as part of the service?
Any other thoughts or ideas before I contact the dealer?

Probably not the answer to your question, but I had a burning smell on Monday.
Mine is the halogen bulb coming out of the rubbish headlight fixing that decided to melt the plastic body !
It was so dark during the day the auto headlights came on !
Crap plastics on these cars compared to my FL2.

Cheers. I will check that out on my car just in case.
