My'07 Ford Focus started smelling like strong glue, any ideas?

Asked by Jul 21, 2015 at 07:10 PM about the Ford Focus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Could it possibly be something with the a/c?  It is really unpleasant - I notice it when I
first get into the car.

did something crawl up in there and die?? look for leaks...

I don't know anything about cars - I just wondered if it was a tell-tale sign about something specific.

Just have it looked at by your mechanic..since you said you didn't know much about cars (and we can't see & smell what you're dealing with). It sounds more like an inconvenience. I would run the AC at very low fan speeds till your mechanic gives it a once-over. Hope it's something minor! Good Luck :)

Look under your seats and in the trunk something may have spilled causing your smell.
