I had that happen big time on my type 3 and didn't hear any untoward 
exhaust noises either, but when I drove it to the shop to install the 
new heat exchangers I had all the windows open and my head out the 
window, the exhaust smell was so bad, and that was with the heater 
valves closed!

Even back in the day (early 70's) I can remember changing several 
heat exchangers for the same reason.
