    why is everyone so quick to diagnose something serious first - if you can smell clutch my first thought would be (now wait for it cos this may be a little out there) THE CLUTCH! I'd then consider other things that could smell like a clutch, ie brakes

    I'd have said the same. But last I checked the clutch was in the engine bay at the front...
