Re: Laguna - Burning smell and smoke
Found out what the problem is. The suspension coil had snapped, big chunk missing. The broken edge was rubbing against the inside of the tyre, which was causing the smell and the smoke. Its in the garage now, new coil being fitted and new tyre. Expensive but at least it didn't break while I was travelling at speed or heck knows what could have happened.
This would have been my hunch as
springs are known issues on Lags. The burning tyre rubber would be more noticeable in the cabin than other types of rubber and plastic throughout the car.
It's a Safrane, not a Laguna.
Currently in N7Qauto's garage:
