what's the best way to fix a hole in the muffler?

It's about the size of a dime

Cool muffler with hole in it

When we've had holes in exhaust pipes, at times some of them were
able to be welded rather than replaced. However, I don't know if
a muffler hole could be welded. We went to a welding company once,
and another time we had Speedy Muffler weld something. When we
have a problem I ususally ask them if they do welding and whether it is
something that can be welded. It usually has cost us a lot less than
replacement. Good luck.

Also, at auto supply stores you can buy packages to temporarily
plug a hole in an exhaust pipe. We have used these. I don't know
whether or not such a package can be used on an actual muffler.

When purchasing a new muffler, we buy a lifegime warranty and
this saves the price of replacing it if it needs to be replaced again.

Best wishes, Oceanwaves

dont fix it... most of the time mufflers rust out because of water being trapped inside, so think of it as a drain hole(only if its in the back or bottom) other wise use what 99intrega said
