Replace the exhaust system on a VW rabbit.  

I could not find much info on the details of installing a muffler.  Hopefully this will help if you have to do the same thing

This was physically difficult for me to do, a lot of being under the car, which I don't like.

Note: The red bentley manual as a good exploded view, it also has the torque spec for the pipe clamps ... although I seem to have lost it.... you can get them from amazon here  

Step 1: Get the parts

This is a complete replacement exhaust with accessories and tools.

<p>Where can I purchase the spring clamp replacement/removal tool. What is yours specifically called? Trying to find cheaper than $22 on Amazon.</p><p></p>
I think this is the one I used:<br>http://www.partsplaceinc.com/products/product-detail.aspx?keyword=VW+Exhaust+Spring+Clip+Tool+VW+-120-849&amp;s=194&amp;&amp;sku=3515<br><br>You could probably make one.
late reply to VW diesel exhaust question ---- I have driven the car very little, so it is hard to say how good it really is. It has stayed on and exhaust comes out the end, and no where else. It does lean to one side, but it does not seem to matter.
How has it held up since then?
