where to look for cig butts in car

over the past few weeks i smelled smoking. figured guy in front of me. then happened about 5 more times

i guess i have to rip off the windshield cover? never did that before

would a cig make it to the cabin filter. that was just new this spring.

where else can i look for a cig in the car. my windows are never open so no one tossed one in

I am not a mechanic... but what about the air intake to the air filter? I wkuld be highly surprised if its there considering how high up that intake is.

Cheers!

Another thought that it was transferred from the bottom of someone's body or shoe.

Easy fix.... Just start smoking - then you won't even notice the smell anymore! ;-)

I kid, I kid...

With the sudden stop did you lock up the tires and smoke them? When you suddenly stopped was it in front of a tobacco shop?
