Small hole in the bottom of exhaust can
« on: 17 February, 2018, 11:45:02 AM »
Hi...   Noticed exhaust fumes coming out of the bottom of the can. On inspection I found a small hole (I guess approx 4mm in diameter) there.  Is this standard?  Maybe to let water out??  I hope it's not a problem.....

Yes, it's to let out any water that gets in from the back of the pipe.
