Exhaust system check (Every 12 000 miles or 12 months)

With the vehicle raised on a hoist or supported on axle stands (see “Jacking and Vehicle Support”), check the exhaust system for signs of leaks, corrosion or damage and check the rubber mountings for condition and security (see illustration). Where damage or corrosion are evident, renew the system complete or in sections, as applicable, using the information given in Chapter 4, Part E.
