Hi,

If I look in exhaust pipe at rear of car then there is a piece of wire mesh across the tube, just a couple of inches in.

Does anyone know what it is there for ?

What will happen when I take it for mot ?

Thanks

Denis

Its probably part of the box baffles coming adrift. But someone may have put it there previously to stop the ingress of rodents who have a liking for glass wool for nesting. i don't think you will have any mot issues though.
