Convert dual exhaust on 99 sunfire gt to single?

You can cut out the Y pipe and replace it with a flex pipe from parts store, then clamp each end of the flex pipe, the pipe diameter will be 1-7/8 or 2 inch, also for the pipe replacement piece would work from a sunfire or cavalier from 1995 and up, might need to replace the muffler strap too. as it can break from rusting, if not already rusted and broken.

Hanging muffler

There are a number of add-on brackets to support a muffler. All they use is a strap with a U-clamp that is the size of the pipes and a mount that fastens to the frame.
You would need to know a safe place to possibly drill a hole for the mounting bolt on the mounting end of the hanger. You could just have a torn rubber strap and may be able to use the old mounting hole once the original bolt is removed.

From rear of muffler extension,the muffler clamp is so rusted i'm at a standstill of how to get it off without ******* up the muffler.

Hello, Just use a hacksaw and saw through it. Then get a U-bolt and replace the clamp. Hanger straps are also available which will allow you to rehang the part. Sometimes you need to brace the muffler with a block of wood and a jack. You just want to keep the muffler from dropping down.

Since the muffler is secure with the jack, as long as no one sits in the car or adds any weight to the vehicle. Then you just add the new hanger or clamp, tighten it, and lower the jack.

The muffler hanger broke on my toyota corolla, how do i replace the hanger?

Roll Your OwnThis model's muffler hanger (the metal strap holding the muffler itself onto the car body) is a two-piece design held together with two bolts. The lower piece, shaped like a broad U, can break loose if one of the bolts rusts away. Replacement parts from the local auto store come as a single piece and are not an exact match. This type of replacement will require some determined work to fit once you have removed all of the entire original strap components. And it will cost $30 plus a trip to the hardware store.

If the original U-shaped lower piece is lost or too damaged to reattach, it is a simple matter to fashion a new one with items available at any Home Depot and costing about $6. 1.5-inch wide galvanized metal strips with a row of holes down the middle come in 4 foot lengths, and metric nuts and bolts are often in the same section. Assuming none of the bolts are left, you'll need two 8mm 1.25 bolts, two nuts of the same size, and a few washers big enough to fit easily over the bolts.

Once home, a simple pliers and hacksaw are all you need to bend and shape the galvanized strip to fit around the lower half of the muffler, which should be about two feet in length. After that, it's just a matter of supporting the dangling muffler (a jack or a piece of wood) and screwing the new piece into each end of the original upper half of the hanger. A number 13 metric wrench will do the trick. If you're comfortable with basic tools, this repair will take 20 minutes and outlast your Corolla. -dan parker

Have a bad rattle at the muffler.sounds like the it is hitting the a bracket broke.

Very common problem with the muffler strap(clamp) breaking. It can be bought at any auto parts store & is easily replaced. It wraps around muffler & slides into a rubber mount bracket.

When I first start to take off in my 2001 Accord, there is a rattling noise coming from under my car. Could this be my muffler?

It sure could be. Check to see if your straps are still intact. You can buy straps from Autozone for $4.00 to $10.00

Muffler strap broken on 2001 saturn sc1 series how to repair the easy way

Part is a dealer only part. There is 2 pieces to it. The strap is all you should purchase. The other part disconnects via a treaded bolt through the rubber mount above the muffler. Loosen the bolt/clamp on the muffler first this will give you the room to reach above the muffler with good lighting.
