Hello! I think you are talking about the rubber exhaust hangers - and I apologize if I'm wrong in this. See the picture below for some examples. These types of hangers are used instead of hard welding in a hanger - which tend to break over time, plus they allow for more adjustment capability - key when trying to get exhaust tips to line up correctly in bumper cutouts. :)

If these are indeed what you're looking for - try your local Ford dealership first - they should carry them in stock and the price isn't much. If no luck there, or no dealership close by - you may have luck at your local auto parts store - they have "universal" rubber hangers available as well.
Hope this helps and good luck!

1999 Blazer ZR2. Replacing muffler and tail pipe. Can not pull apartl flange on muffler and exhaust pipe. Bolts broke off and still can't break. Don't have air impact chisel. Would heat help.


The auto store probably sells a big chisel and a 4 lb hammer? If your going to replace anyway, use a hack saw. In my younger days, I've cut many a tail pipe with a hack saw. So a new muffler and tail pipe will have new flanges? I can't see anything from here.

Stop leaking?


There should be rubber hoses at either end of the metal pipe to allow for engine ,movement. It would be black steel pipe and it rusts out from lack of coolant conditioner.. A final fix for this would be to take it to a muffler/ exhaust shop and have a new pipe bent to shape made out of exhaust stainless steel tubing

Tailpipe is hanging very low


Hi. Under or near the tailpipe, there are rubber and sometimes steel hangers that are placed onto the sides of the pipe structure. These move with the assembly to provide little flexibility during travel. These hangers also are there to keep the pipe/muffler assembly from dragging or hanging to low. When the hanger assembly becomes unstable or damaged, it will allow the tail pipe assembly to hang low or sometimes drag the ground when you hit a bump. The necessary actions are to raise the vehicle high so that you can inspect the exhaust tail pipe assembly for broken hangers or steel bracing devices. replace any rubber hangers that may be snapped or missing form their respective locations. If you are uncomfortable with raising the vehicle, i would take the unit to a local muffler/exhaust shop for the inspection.

Blown exhaust on a vw passat can i fix it?


There is only one way to really fix a blown exaust and thats to replace it. It's not a bad job as long as you can get the car hi enough off the ground. You need a 14 mm wrench 13mm wrench WD40 14mm-13mm sockets and a swear jar for the kids so they make money!! Find out what part of the pipe is blowing by putting a potato over the end of the system with the car running. Perhaps you only need a small portion of the system.

Trying to change my muffler, from the y back , what do I need to do


Single exhaust, bolts on at the Y pipe and from there back the system is held in place on rubber hangers.
Simple install once you get the bolts removed at the Y pipe.
Dual exhaust is the same but X 2.
If you're not going to replace the Y pipe then you'll have to cut the pipe to the proper length and clamp or weld the muffler on.

Exhaust Pipe broke/Rust on muffler


Flex pipe will work, or if it's a straight section of pipe you can buy a universal piece of exhaust tubing with flared ends, trim off the rusty ends on your original pipe with a hacksaw or Sawzall and slip in the new section. Clamp it with 2 muffler clamps and you're set. Total cost should be under $40.

The exhaust pipe support bracket (the one behind the muffler) broke off. Where can I get a new one? The pipe moves now when I hit a bump. I cannot find the right one anywhere. Again, it is not the one at...


If it was welded to the exhaust you'll need new exhaust. If we are talking about a rubber exhaust hangar any volvo dealer should be able to sell you one for fairly cheap.

I have a 1999 ford f150 exhaust pipe and muffler


did the flange come apart or did the pipe break, if the pipe broke then you will have to replace the system fron the flange back, these exhaust systems look good but corrode from the inside out, get a new system i will probably come in three pieces, and new hangers, its pretty straightforward

I need to replace the oil pan gasket and it looks like the exhaust pipe is in the way-what should I do?


The tail pipe is connected to the muffler. You need to remove the entire muffler. However, the hot exhaust fumes tend to corrode connections so taking off the muffler might require some work.
