"Hot" smell in and around vehicle when stopped after running
I have a 2004 Clio Classic (tribox) 1.4 16v, bought 2nd hand. There is a very noticeable smell of something hot coming into the car, and which also can be smelled outside the car, when the car comes to a halt after being driven. The impression is of steamy fabric, but with a metallic odour as well. It cannot be smelled while the car is moving and no warning signs are coming on. I seem to remember this smell being most noticeable after the engine is switched off, when I get out of the car. It seems to be stronger towards the rear of the car, but quickly dissipates. Does anyone have any ideas about this? Thanks.
