Drove from Chas. SC to Knoxville, TN for a Wedding Friday.
Stopped for gas In H'ville, NC and everything was fine.
Got to the hotel in Knox and walked around the back of the car
and there were 3' long pieces of "hair" coming out of the right
tailpipe!
Everybody in the Wedding party came out to look at it.
I thought I had run over something but it was inside the tailpipe.

The weirdest thing you have ever seen.
We got to the Wedding and there was more coming out!
This time I realized it was the fiberglass packing in the muffler.
It was the talk of the Wedding.

I will upload a pic tomorrow.

What I was visualizing from the title was MUCH more titilating. Quick, edit your post before someone else reads it. :highfive:

Check prior threads (in last 30 days). Someone else had the exact same issue - turned out to be insulation/batting from the muffler - he got both mufflers/exhaust replaced under warrantee as I recall.

Verdict:

Service manager called Techical Service and they have had 2 other SRXs with this problem. They are shipping a complete catback system with both mufflers.
Apparently it is one piece with both muflers attached.
Should be here next week
