There are rubber mounting underneath the car, remove there.

follow the exhaust pipe to the engine, loosening any bolts and nuts holding the exhaust in place.

the exhaust pipe meets the exhaust manifold close to the engine. loosen it there and replace,

the part remaining on the engine (also a much thicker pipe than the pipe) is the exhaust manifold. this must the loosened at the engine itself. normally two nuts per cylinder and your car being 4 cylinder its 8 nuts.

There nuts can be dreadfully tight though, it gets hot there so the expansion and cooling of of the studs and nuts tend to make them tighter over time

I see a visit to a muffler shop in your future. Find an independent privately owned shop, not a chain operated place. They'll be better and cheaper than a chain shop

2001 Ford Focus Flex tube exhaust leak

OK, flex tubes are notorious for leaking exhaust over time due to the overflexing of the tube due to engine mounts not being strong enough over the service life of the vehicle.

One solution, is to take the car to a custom exhaust shop and have them fashion a sleeved exhaust that will not break as easily as the original equipment.

For instance, in my area, we have Midas or Meineke Exhaust centers that can fashion a custom exhaust for the vehicle solving the problem for the life of the pipes, anyway.

Good luck on fixing this problem.

Ford focus 2002, When accelerating sounds like exhaust is blowing. Replaced exhaust but noise still there, any ideas?

Check the EGR valve pipe connection and mounting gasket, also check the EGR pipe connection at the exhaust manifold. Check the exhaust manifold for cracks and gasket leaks, hope this helps, let me know.

white = coolant (possible head gasket)
Black = fuel (possible leaking injector)
Blue = oil (possible bad rings)

Ford focus 1.6 zitec petrol, engine warning light flashing, engine chugging, very high fuel consumption, fumes smell when stationary, exhaust seems ok, recently change speed sensor and coil pack?

try the air filter first and the intake.the spark plugs then and after all go to a garage for checking compression timing and the head gasket.

Rough idle and engine will shut off after warm.

Check the exhaust manifold gasket. I have a 2003 SVT Focus I had a problem with it loping at low RPMs. I had a free flow exhaust system. When I bought a new exhaust manifold I replaced the gasket and the problem went away.

Severe hesitation, bucking

Sounds like the cat may be blocked. Stand at the tail pipe and get someone to rev it. If you get a whooshing sound from the exhaust, investigate further up the pipe.
