Fiber Strains On Back Glass

Recommended Posts

So I posted this on the Edge ST Facebook page (which on a side note it has some good info on there and allot of the members don't know about this forum)  anyhow so I notice on my back glass after driving it a little aggressive that I have these fine hairs or fiber strands on the glass.  At first I thought it was the new exhaust burning in so I called borla and the tech said he has never heard of that and NO there exhaust doesn't burn out fibers.   Shortly after I posted it on FB another member who has a stock exhaust has the same issue so that rules out the exhaust theory.   One person said it would be the material under the car that is made of the same material as a hood liner that it would be coming off that?  I have no idea so figured I would post up here.  My car has 385 miles on it and to date has not been driven in the rain I use another car for rainy days..LOL  but if any of you have had this or and idea's what it would be I am all ears.   Also on the Edge ST facebook page owners have said after driving the ST aggressively that they smell a burning smell.  Could be because the cars are new but wonder if others have smelled the same type of thing?

 

Thanks in advance

I found the old thread talking about this from 2015.   It's coming from the heat shield by the muffler.

I had some coming out of my exhaust too, and it's all stock back there. I figured it might be from the resonator, but I saw it happening at around 2000 miles.

I have had this a couple times as well, but not recently.

Burning smell is normal and is just the exhaust and turbos getting super hot when driving very hard/aggressively.  I have over 6000 miles on mine and still smell it fro time to time when really flogging her.

This is why I like this forum because I get answers to questions.  😀

 

Thank you guys for the feedback that makes sense.
