    Capture.JPG I removed the exhaust and took the whole assembly completely apart because I noticed some little spots of rust on the back of it and I wanted to get to them before they got worse and couldn't be polished off. In the past I noticed a OEM hardware piece was missing so I checked out the diagram of all the parts on the exhaust system. Both #1 parts (see diagram) are missing. I imagine they are necessary or they wouldn't be there?

    Some of the newer replacement pipes are made with those parts welded to the pipe already. They are needed so that the flange holds the pipe in proper place. If you can post a picture that would help but that's what I suspect.

    Here's a picture. I hope it's clear enough to tell.
