Possible to repair 997 PSE Muffler (Baffle gone)

Recommended Posts

I've got a UK 2006 997.1 S with PSE and X51 headers.

It would seem from listening to the exhaust the passenger side muffler has a loose baffle inside it, sounds like bits of metal in a tin on cold start up, horrible horrible noise. Once the car has warmed up the noise mostly goes away, no doubt as things expand with heat and the baffle does not move so easily.

Porsche told me my warranty would not cover this and a new muffler would be close too £1000 for that side.

Can this be repaired by someone who is a welding/exhaust expert?

Or is all hope lost?

My car has warranty so can't really fit a 3rd party muffler either, but saying that I do love the PSE sound.

Check the heat shields on the underside of the bumper.

Checked these and unfortunately not.

Porsche did say the baffle had gone and is not covered under warranty, they did advice welding it but would not offer to do it as its not something or kind of work they do.
