5027Re: Advice on exhaust
- Mar 19, 2007Sami,
The exhaust on my 525e (also UK) seems very stable - as soon as is
stops raining/hailing/snowing i'll shove my head underneath for a
look for you and see how mine is mounted. I know for certain that
just before the rear axle there should be 2 rubber rings holding the
centre section up (had to replace one for the last MOT).
