Thanks again!

First step to do... I am not kidding!

Those torpedo-shaped fuses should be replaced every ten years or so. All of them in the fuse box. They are not expensive. But they do go bad over time.

OK Warning heeded.

I'll still go with the o rings first, because they are so cheap. But I am now going to research on how to adjust a new EHA. Thanks!

Does not seem to be extreme, wiped it clean yesterday and smell hasn't returned yet after almost an hour of driving.
