You will need a torch kit, as you will have to cut off the old muffler and weld on the new one.

How do i remove rear coil spring on 2005 ford focus

Some autoparts stores lend tools as a courtesy. Things like spring compressors or strut compressors are needed. Some rear struts are made to come off as a unit with the coils made as part of the strut. Others are a 2 piece design and the coil and strut are individually replaced.

A note for the struts is that many need an alignment similar to the common front end alignment after you are done.

Mufflers- these usually come from the factory welded together. You need to allow for the lengths of the pipe and muffler in order to bolt them together after you saw off the old parts. IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT YOU CAN NOT GET A MUFFLER AS CHEAP AS A PROFESSIONAL SHOP CAN. Some are better off re-welded together instead of bolted. You would still have to buy U-bolts but a shop would just weld. Less parts less cost. Also dirt and rusty steel in an eye is not fun.

I have a 1997 chev cavalier, and as I was driving I heard a dragging noise, I looked under my car and the tube from the exhaust that connects to the muffler is off, what will i need to fix this, my brother...

Take your car to a muffler shop and ask them if it's possible to reweld the exhaust pipe to the muffler. If the exhaust has rusted too thin, they wont be able to weld it safely, at that point you will have to replace the entire system unfortunately. Exhaust systems comes in sections, so ask them if its possible for them to replace the exhaust from the catalytic converter back only. It should be cheaper if they can do that. Good luck!

Hi there
Just take it into the exhaust people and tell them that you need a new muffler ONLY. welded into the place of old one as all your problem is the BAFFEL plates have come loose and the welding is only spot welded and isent any good So a new muffler is ALL YOU WANT

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_

Muffler is loud and rattles due to debris and possible hole

either live with it or get out a saw and cut it out and weld in a new exhaust muffler. or you might get the measurements and get one to fit where you cut out the old one from your parts store.. make sure you measure your pipe and get a muffler that will fit over the pipe .. You will need clamps for the muffler also.. thanks and holler if you need more Jerry

Exhaust replacement & Rear Brakes

I can't see a problem with the converter, but if your in one of the states that does emissions testing it might be a problem as it most likely would leak where its clamped. The best thing to do is get it all on and try to find someone to weld it for you. As far as axel seals, if there bolt in axels unbolt pull out and use the end of the axel to pop out the old seal, and just tap the new seal in carefuly. seals around $ 10.00. Break kleen will clean up break shoes and drumb. Need more help just ask.
