The muffler issue is all about the decible levels for the area that you're in. They just want to make sure that it's not considered to be too loud.

Remove front passenger headrest.

Depending on where you are, removing a safety device could give you problems at safety inspection. I'd recommend that you check with your local police or vehicle insurance agent before you get to far into removing them.

Do you have the cats on the muffler. If so, there is a chance that the glass pack muffler will pass inspection. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to fix muffler exhaust?

New exhaust would be the best way to go. Maybe from the catalytic converter back. You can get muffler tape at your local parts store but it wouldnt be permanant nor will it pass inspection.

Check Engine Light

I just had this code actually on my car, 2000 G/A GT, found, of course, by the guy doing my state inspection while in the middle of the inspection... AUTO FAIL. I was told to replace the Oxygen sensor in position one (on the back of the block under the spark plug cables in the middle), did that and the light came back on in a week. Try replacing both the sensors first (there are two, the one mentioned and the other is by the CAT) because they are relatively inexpensive. Beyond that, make sure there are no muffler/pipe leaks and your filters are clean. If that doesn't help, try getting somebody with a higher quality scan tool to pinpoint the problem a bit better. Might be worth paying the $80 at an independent shop to solve it right off the bat.

No wait

If the muffler is literally falling apart, I would replace it before you take it to get it safety inspected. If it just has a small hole in it and has no chance of it literally coming apart, then I wouldn't worry about it. So technically, it's not necessary to replace the muffler for a safety inspection but it'll be up to who is inspecting the car if he decides to have you replace it or not. So if the muffler is "rough" , I would replace it. If it's still in good shape, then I wouldn't bother replacing it.

Muffler problems 3

If they don't require emissions where you're going to take the Bronco, as long as your lights, horn, signals, etc all the required things are working, you shouldn't have a problem with it. The fact that the muffler was bad when you went to emissions, this is the reason why it failed there.
