Burning odour

Asked by Feb 21, 2015 at 02:21 PM about the 2006 Honda CR-V LX AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 06CRV has a like tire burning odour over the right rear tire after a trip! I have serviced
the brakes and the callipers with grease and everything looks fine. Even the emergency
brakes are served. And the odour is still there. Did anyone have an experience like that?
