RE: gas smells none human! in the cabin comparment/trunk

My 88 560 Euro also has the same problem just started two days ago, on searching the forums, I'm told the common cause is the EHA valve located under the air filter and that the "O" rings fail, its a little matchbox size unit. I was going to have it checked out this week, and provide back the results.

Question: seems this problem is only on the 560s there are two postings on the same date!! may be that only the change in weather or a gremlin introduced by the fuel companys adding more chemicals!!
