What appears to be loose muffler ?

3 posts in this topic

We have a 2008 451 Cabrio , 85K with what appears to be a very loose original muffler. I can move the muffler back and forth, swiveling on the mounts, with no effort at all as it sort of also swivels at the base of the flex line entering the muffler. One can't see anything as the stock stainless mesh covers the flex pipe coming from the cat. There is no apparent exhaust leakage or extra noise when idling or revving the engine. Is this normal or should I be investigating further? Thank you.

The flex pipe eventually fails on the 451 muffler. I would fix it before it fails completely.  It takes a 1 3/4" diameter X 8" long flex pipe.  A muffler shop should be able to make the repair.
