Burning Rubber Smell Form AC Vent
I started to get an on again off again burning rubber smell from the A/C vent on my 2007 JKU. A/C does not need to be on just the fan and I still get the smell.
I looked under the hood and found the power lead for the winch rubbing on what I think is the power steering pump. It had melted the wire loom sheath but did not go through the insulation of the cable. I repaired the loom and relocated it so it does not touch anything hot. Started her up and still got a bit of the smell. It did go away but not convinced this was the cause.
