Hi, I've got smoke coming from the rear of my engine. It's down below the engine at the back.
I've got a 2006 A4 B7 TFSI Quattro.

The smoke appears to be coming from the Heatshield around the gearbox/transmission at the back of the engine, kind of low down under the dash almost.

It smells like burning paper to be honest and not like burning oil, so I'm ruling out an oil leak.

I've just had the car back from the garage for a replacement air con compressor, and belt. Unlikely to be connected as the two are on opposite side of the engine?

Should I be worried??
