Need to replace the exhaust on my 1993 SWB. Pipe cracked off behind the muffler, the rear portion of the pipe and resonator are just dangling on the mounts. I have access to a parts truck and would like to cannibalize the exhaust system off that thing to use as an interim measure until I figure out what I want as a long term solution.


Before I get going on this, are there any parts, tools, or tricks specific to this job that I should acquire in advance? Not having done this before, it would seem like a straightforward remove and replace, but it's rarely that easy. Any new gaskets or hardware I should install during the swap? The only junction should be the Y-pipe to exhaust pipe, correct? Assuming I can remove everything else in one piece. Haven't looked at that junction yet, it's possible the hardware is rusted and will make life difficult.

I have an aftermarket muffler and no resonator on mine, but it's all one piece (welded) from y-pipe to tail. It may be a bit hard removing around the axle if it's one piece. Maybe see if you can split it after the muffler.

I have two piece set ups available for under 3 delivered.

You should just skip the B.S. and fix it right

I am on a wife-imposed Rover parts buying moratorium. But your point is well taken.

Do we need to have a telephone session? I will waive the normal fee for you guys.

The couple I conferenced called yesterday were super pleased. In fact at the end of the conversation she was interested in outfitting her Range Sport.

It's not a sign of weakness at all. It's a rock solid step to building a strong foundation and open line of communication for future Rover needs.

Get yourself a bottle of this stuff first... or, mix your own from equal parts ATF and thinners. Apply liberally and regularly before attempting to loosen.
