Bringing you more than just peace & quiet. Psst – even if it's main job is to keep the noise level down: As part of the exhaust system, your Volkswagen's silencer has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

Do the hearing test: Is your Volkswagen unusually loud? Is anything clattering? Do you hear any rattling sounds or a loud humming? But don't stop there - play it safe and have your silencer checked on a regular basis, e.g. during a vehicle check at your Volkswagen Partner.
A defective silencer is harmful and dangerous - for you, for the environment and
for others. An increase in noise is stressful for both animals and people, your
concentration level suffers and you can't hear warning signals properly.
If exhaust gases simply leave the vehicle unchecked, they can also damage any parts found near the silencer. Parts that have fallen off a vehicle also pose a huge risk to other road users.
It's much better to have an expert change your silencer. Reason: Its suspension has to be both firm and flexible. This will keep it safely in place and enable it to absorb any vibrations. If it's incorrectly installed, vibrations may occur. In the worst-case scenario, these may damage the exhaust system and the underbody of the vehicle.
