I've noticed the exhausts on MK2 mondeos come out the back on the left, the right or both.

Why do some use the left and some the right?

I thought it might have been a change one year but mine is a 1998 and on the left; but i've seen earlier and later models where the exhaust is on the right.

Probably a very simple answer to this but I don't know!

afaik a left hand exit is a 1.6 or 1.8 engine. right handed exit is for the 2.0 engined cars. the twin exit it is a standard fit unit was for the V6 models, although that cant be taken for granted now as a lot of people are fitting twin exit aftermarket systems to there cars

Well mine's a V6 (1998 ST24) and exhaust is on the left.
I've seen other V6's with the exhaust on the right.

I know of a 2.0 petrol with the exhaust on the right whereas Dave6656's is on the left.

1.6/1.8..left(passenger side)
2.0...could be any side..
2.5..right side..
st200..both sides..

thats mk1 and mk2....mk3 I've no idea,don't look at them too much(too germanic for my liking.. :whistling: )...

As said by Mal, on the Mk1 and Mk2, the 1.6 and 1.8 petrol and the TD are all left hand exit.

The 2.0 could be either side, except on the late Mk2's, which are left hand exit. No Idea why Ford fitted the extra silencer box on some 2.0?

The V6's have a right hand exit, except the ST200, which had a tailpipe on both sides :L

Mk3's, iirc they all exit on the left except the ST220. But no doubt someone may correct that if the Mk3 V6's exit on the right lol
