Have any of you experienced this problem? Also, what is the fix from the dealer? Do they just repaint them? Anyone have a copy of the TSB itself? Thanks.

I'm starting to notice it too, although it isn't really flaking off all over the place--just a few small spots here and there...

i would imagine them just repainting the cans instead of replacing them...this was more of a problem on the 6th gen accords. mine seem to be holding up ok right now...my then 2000 accord did not. i didn't bother with that though.

I had the exact same problem on my 99 TL. The dealer said it is a known problem. They repaint them with high-temp paint (apparently, the original paint will eventually flake off). It takes all day to dry, so they gave me a loaner and I came back the next day. It's looking good now, been almost a year, and still looks perfect.

Does anyone know if the dealer has to remove the mufflers in order to repaint them?
They better take them out before paint them. Otherwise, there's overspay whole underneath the car!! :nono: :(
