Exhaust Flex Pipe; How to replace?


You can change the entire section of exhaust pipe that the flex pipe is in. It's usually bolted to the catalytic converter, on the back end, and to the exhaust manifold at the front end. It's just a matter of unbolting it and bolting on the new section of exhaust with new gaskets. You could also go to a muffler shop and have them cut out the old flex pipe and weld in a new piece of flex pipe in it's place. It's for you to decide which option is best for you, and for your wallet.

Replace the entire section before and after the flex. Be sure to look into excessive engine movement, that may have caused this failure. Welds will fail again, quickly.

Exhast pipe where it is braided is loud how do you replace it


I have seen a lot of muffler shops or reg shops just weld that thing together to stop the leak, because it does wear out fast, it is a flex joint, I think to replace it it, you have to get the whole section of pipes, crossovers, etc, whatever you have under there. Hope this helps.

1996 Nissan Maxima exhaust replacements


Yes you can obtain the parts from after market. The Flex Pipe is installed on all cars hows engine is built in transverse. if you accelerate the engine tries to turn against the crankshaft rotation. W/o flex pipe your exhaust will be broken after a couple of minutes. The flex pipe acts like an accordion and eliminates this small "turns".

Exhaust noise coming from engine compartment. Repair shop says the 'flex pipe' is cracked and wants $319 to replace it. I cannot find a flex pipe online to compare replacement part price. Is it still under...


well the flex pipe is a good price at $319 because it will bolt on, if you get a universal one your gonna have to get it welded and what a pain it is,,,,the 10,100,000 mile warranty only cover like nothing,so this is not covered sorry Hyundai is strict with the warranty only major internal engine or trans repair does it cover,,i would just pay the $319,,,thats cheap for this repair
