confused Ford Ka smells like a hair dryer?

Hi, my ford Ka has been smelling like a hair dryer for a while now, it started coming through the vents when I had the heating on but now it smells very strongly of this when I get out the car. The oil was low but i have topped this up now and the smell is still there so far. I have checked the radiator water level and things like this but all seems ok. I have a long drive to Wales so I am a bit worried about it braking down in the middle of nowhere. Any ideas what it could be? Thanks

Re: Ford Ka smells like a hair dryer?

Hard to diagnose without being there but from what you describe it sounds like your heater matrix is leaking . Quite common fault .
