Anyone ever had the carpet melt into the floor, just from the heat off the exaust ?

This has been happening on and off for a while, on a long drive if I go over 100 kph,
I can smell what I thought was oil from the gear box but I just found the carpet under the seat is melted as well as a plastic item under the seat.
I had to pry it off with a screwdriver it was so stuck.

But what I don't get is why???
I know the little flexy section in the exaust is leaking a bit but can't imagine it should do that.
Or am I wrong?

Your exhaust could be to close to the floor especially if you have a 3" system also check how close it is to the clutch slave cylinder I bought some exhaust tape from Auto barn and wrapped mine where needed.
