First spray some type of lubricant on the rubber hangers(.wd-40) to make them slippery then use a pry bar or large pliers to push out the steel hanger. hope this is what you where looking for .

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

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.

How do i replace the muffler in a 1991 jeep cherokee?


Is the muffler welded or clamped? If welded, Taking it to a muffler shop would assure a good job. Welding a muffler in place is a trade andneeds special wquipment and skills. If it is clamped, Removing the clamps and peripherals is not the issue. Removing the muffler and properly fitting the a new muffler can be not only frustrating and difficult but time consuming as well. You have to buy the muffler in either case so you need to weigh your time against the labor charges. It's like dismounting a semi truck tire. Even the tire guy fights it, but in half the time.. I've done two in 40 yrs and would sit and wait for a tire man all week before I would mess with it. Mufflers are much different. Good Luck _Ned_

Pontiac Sunfire Exhaust pipe hanging low


Most local muffler shop will inspect the exhaust for you for free and if it's just a broken hanger, they can replace it for around $45.00. You could always go to the auto parts store and buy a new hanger, but your going to have to get under the car and remove any old parts left over from the old hanger and place the new one. Good luck and hope this helps. If you go to Auto Zone they can help you look up all the hangers for that car or any muffler shop as mentioned earlier.
