Ok so yesterday a friend and I noticed a funky smell coming from inside the car. It only comes when the car is warmed up and can only be noticed inside. When driving it goes away, but when you're stopped, it comes back. I checked the entire interior and even the engine for burned or damaged hoses or whatever. Nothing. It's driving me nuts. Today we finally pinned it down to the smell of hot glue from a glue gun. No idea what it is or from where its coming from. Anyone know what it could be?
