Recently the Spider has been kicking out a smell like copydex glue, seems to come from air con but not the normal sort of musty smell you sometimes get from air con, more like a distinctive gluey smell from the vents - only started happening recently, wondered if anyone else had experienced it, and what it might be?

PS also, when at idle there's a smell of petrol (only from outside the car, can't smell it inside).. it's always done this since new, not sure if it's normal?

Sounds like bacteria in the air con system. Buy a can of aircon deoderiser and follow the instructions on the tin. Aldi was selling it for 1.99 last week
