Exhaust Clamp Replacement

Recommended Posts

So one side of my Exhaust Clamps has a crack in it. I am thinking of replacing them myself at home on axle stands. Having just watched Max Revs video I wonder if it will not be so easy. Are they really welded or is that a myth?


Has anybody done this, and if so how easy/hard is it? If I don't do it myself can it wait a year until the next service? Also should I replace the exhaust tips at the same time as I would rather have black tips over the chrome.

Any advice appreciated.

It depends upon how gung ho you are but that doesn't look too hard at all. The workshop guy did it with nothing much more than a hammer and chisel and pry bar, and a grinder to cut the old clamp off. Yes it would be harder on your back with the car on jacks but that owner probably paid £120 or more just to avoid getting his hands dirty. 


I'd look at that as a Saturday's entertainment with the pride of a job well done while spending the £120 on some beer in the evening.
