Fitting a Webasto Silencer

Recommended Posts

Silencers are available from all the heater makers Perry, just make sure you get the right size for your exhaust tubing (normally 22mm or 24/5mm). The exhaust tubing should be cut in the most convenient place (close to the heater is most effective) and the silencer inserted. There are proper clamps to use also and I have found that a little of the thin white exhaust sealant / lubricant used on car exhausts helps ease the fitting and helps prevent exhaust gasses leaking. Just make sure everything is secure and not close to combustible materials when you have finished. If you can get hold of some exhaust wrapping similar to that which is used on the exhaust tubing then wrap the silencer in that. IMPORTANT NOTE, check that no exhaust gasses are leaking and nothing around the exhaust is getting hot after you have completed the job. You may notice a slight “hot†smell for a little while after fitting but that is just any debris or oils in the silencer burning off and provided it does not continue then is of no concern.

Tools required: small hacksaw, 10mm socket or spanner

Possible extras: perforated metal strip and a couple of small nuts & setscrews / self tappers to securely “bracket†the silencer

If fitting the exhaust causes a “low†spot in the exhaust run then a condensation drain may also be needed.

It is also worth a mention that an combustion air intake filter / silencer, if not already fitted makes a huge difference to the noise level.
