dguy posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 451 Model, 2008-2015, gasolineG'day, Does anyone happen to know what type(s) of metal make up the joint between the muffler's flex pipe and the rigid section just down stream of the manifold flange? At ~90,000km the flex pipe on ours is failing just a bit down stream from the manifold flange. It is no longer affixed to the rigid portion of the pipe, and it can slide back & forth a ways without coming completely free. The resulting noise is not unreasonable (yet), but the failure is allowing the muffler to swing in the hangers and it's slowly bashing a divot out of the rear skirt. I have half a mind to try to tack weld the two sections back together rather than dropping half a grand on a new assembly, but I have no idea what type of wire I would need to use.
