I've a ZS so dont know much about the ZR, but funny smells can be down to an old pollen filter, if you have one has it been changed???

Dont know if that would cover burning smells.

Nothing on, or near the exhaust.

Hi thanks for the reply :) ill check it out at weekend. Not a hard/expensive job is it??
exhaust looks ok. I went for a drive earlier and got out to sniff arount. Seems to be coming from drivers side. Alternater/ wheel arch area :s

Welcome to the site mate I'm pretty new here my self :)

Check all your wireing from the alternator, It proberly isn't the alternator as you would no about it if it was, Give your air box a good clean out and replace the filter, just general check all pipes and conections for anything that shouldnt be there, Carnt really help unless you know exactlly where its coming from.
