Another A140 problem!!

Hi guys, having a nightmare with this car seriously wish I hadnt wasted my money buying it in the first place.

Smoke coming from drivers side rear vent above first aid compartment.
Its also coming from behind rear driver side light, could this be anything to do with fuel pump? like a electrical burning smell.

Thanks in advance guys

If I were you, I would disconnect the battery IMMEDIATELY and keep a fire extinguisher nearby.

Does the smoke stops when the car is off. What is described here is very vague but you need to assume a worst case scenario, thus disconnecting the battery immediately.

I doubt this has anything to do with the fuel pump since I am assuming that the car runs.
