976376 part # is missing from both sides on my 2015 GRiSO...how could that happen??!!

I decided to check a bunch of bolts today, the exhaust manifold bolts were not tight, and even one of the studs spun out when trying to remove the nut instead of staying put.  So...I decided to pull everything off...there are NO gaskets at all...surely this is a major assembly error at the factory, or are these assembled at the dealer typically?

Ordered a couple from MG Cycle this evening, should make I reckon quite a bit of difference in noise and performance not having this minor leak on both sides that I didn't even know had existed...at night with lights off using a flashlight I can see whisps of exhaust curling out right at the header, much more on the left side than the right side...now I think I've got the explanation for why the left pipe had purpled quite a bit and much more than the left side.

Quality Control...MISSING!!  Smile

Are you sure they aren't there? They compress down fairly tightly and are pretty much invisible. It is highly unlikely that the headers could be fitted without them and not have an obvious leak occur.

I've made that mistake. They compress down to virtually nothing. I was convinced I had left the right one it out at some point. I had to scrape it out.

Thanks Pete and Mark...honestly I looked extensively on both the engine side and exhaust side and I don't see them at all, unless they are so so thin that they are invisible, and since I have wisps of exhaust leaking out, it seems they are missing or crushed to the point of being ineffective.

At any rate, when the replacement ones come from MG, I'll know pretty quickly if that solves the issue. Thanks for the speedy replies!
