    I recently brought a second hand vz ute. There were no issues with it initially. Only about a day or two ago, i noticed what looked like clumps of hair extensions just hanging out of the exhaust pipe. I keep pulling the crap out whenever I see it because its embarrassing. The car isn't stock standard as it has a twin exhaust pipe and its louder then the last commadore I had. Is there a solution to this hairy exhaust or can someone please explain to me what i need to do to stop it.
    Am i causing more problems by pulling the hair out of the exhaust pipe whenever I see it?
    Is this an indication that i have a massive mechanical problem? Any advice about what to do would be great.
    Thanks heaps

    Sounds like cat crawled up there. No l'm only joking.
    I think one of the mufflers is coming apart.

    It’s a minor issue. Easy fix.
    Take it in to your local exhaust shop.
