Recently I have noticed that after a reasonable length journey in my Signum 3.0 cdti, when I stop the car and get out, I sometimes get a smell like burning rubber. I've checked the tyres and they are fine. Also, on occasion when I start the car(when cold) I get a screeching noise - it doesn't last long and sounds like the noise I use to get on older cars when the water pump was on its last legs.
Its booked in tomorrow but the Vx dealer thought it was unlikely to be the water pump as they are much moer reliable nowadays.
Anyone else had this problem - I always find it best to go into the dealer armed with the very useful comments I get from this site.
