Default Burning Rubber Smell In The Cabin

I checked the wheel well everything looks fine nothing is rubbing however i have this annoying burning rubber smell after i drive 15 miles when i come to a stop thats in the cabin and can be smelled out side the car at times. What could this issue be ?

I checked the belts visually, nothing seems to be slipping or anything so what else ?

Are you driving in heavy snow?

Have you checked the wheel liners?

Default Re: Burning rubber smell in the cabin

I checked all the wheel wells everything is good, nothing is rubbing. I have no snow caught in the wells either i wanna say it may be one of the pullys maybe sticking due to a bad bearing but i will inspect the belts over the weekend but there really no other possibility right ?

Could it be because of all the snow on the road or old belts ?

Could be snow stuck in the wheel wells which forms into ice eventually, causing your tired to rub against it. You your belts are being chewed up by the pulleys or snow that could of possibly gotten into the engine bay area. Or you left your E-Brake on and your dragging your rear wheels. The last one is for people that cant drive.

Default Re: Burning Rubber Smell In The Cabin

you sure you dont have a plastic bag that got caught up on the exhuast ?

basically after driving that distances your building heat, so its melting then, and its comming thru your A/C vents..

its the other thing I can think of ,

the only thing that can melt near the header or exhuast , or rubber the motor mounts which I doubt.

there isnt anything else rubber besides the a/c line and power steering lines.

im betting its some plastic bag or some sort caught up on the exhuast.

Also check to make sure that non of your pulleys are rubbing against any rubber hoses. I just found that problem in my truck, crank pulley rubbed a hole in my AC line.

Same in the 6.5 gen, it was the belt, fixed and never happened again, only during acceleration would you smell it if you were going from like 40 - 70 onto the highway and no AC was on
