Exhaust silencer flow direction


I've recently bought a new exhaust silencer for my RM from Dinex. It has no flow direction marked anywhere on it. I wanted to check if it matters which way around it needs to be before fitting. Does anyone know?



My bus number (if any): RM2208

Re: Exhaust silencer flow direction

Adam if there are no arrows or markings on it then it probably isn’t directional ? Perhaps check back with Donex technical dept ?

My bus number (if any): RML2747

Re: Exhaust silencer flow direction

Thanks Graham. I ended up just comparing both side by side having removed the old one and checking which end the baffle was by looking down the tubes.
