Aux heater exhaust
« on: May 17, 2018, 01:02:21 PM »
Does anyone know if there is technical reason not to extend the aux heater exhaust to the back of the car. I intend servicing/modifying while the weather is warmer, and would like to avoid fumes under the car.
My Touareg is a similar design, exiting under the car near the front door.

Only that the original tail pipe is a weak spot and they eventually break off from the little silencer so I would advise removing the exhaust from heater first before attaching any sort of extension which would also need to be well supported so not to put strain on the silencer/tailpipe.

Apart from the above, if the pipe is longer it will take more time to heat up and burn off/solidify any carbon deposits.  A high proportion of short journeys might cause it to block.
