    Default Puff of Smoke

    Hi All,

    Pulling into my drive way after a quick shopping trip, I noticed a small puff of smoke coming from under where the brake and accelerator are, it soon disappeared once I switched the car off. I let the car idle for 5 mins or so later on, but I haven't been able to recreate the smoke or pinpoint the source, any ideas?

    Cheers

    Strange... I would guess that it's just some dirt coming out of the footwell air vent?

    Did you smell the smoke??

    For example, Acrid Electrical arcing smell, or bonfire sort of smoke smell??

    I would have to say, electrical, almost like something was shorting out in the wiring.
