Step 1: Prepare Tools
You will need to prepare your tools, ppe and working environment.
gloves, glasses and dirty clothes
exhaust repair putty
Step 2: Raising the Vehicle
Using the weight appropriate jack lift one side slowly and carefully build the the blocks to the axl, drop the jack slowly.
beware the vehicle could tip and YOU SHOULD NOT WORK UNDER THE VEHICLE ON THE JACK ALOWN and repeat on the opposite side.
be careful as the vehicle weight shifted and dropped whilst lifting.
Step 3: Locate the Snapped Exhaust
I decided to apply it externally, it can be done internally too please check the previous link to see how.
Step 4: Prepare the Tin Can and Paste
I opened the flange on one side.
I cleaned the exhaust of rust and dirt and prepared the putty.
Step 5: Dry Fit and Check
Step 6: Putty and Tin Can Assembly
realigned the snapped area, started to apply the putty and work it in to the cracks, I found it easiest with fingers and thumb.
I applied the putty into the tin, trying to cover all parts.
wrapping the tin around the joint and postioned the hose clips, I used a screwgun to speed up the process and finished the a screwdriver.
sorry there isn't any pictures as I held the pressure on the tin.
once I was happy with the clips I reapplied the putty acrossed the flanges and the side of the tin can.
Step 7: Test Your Work
I left it running for a while whilst I tidied up as the the heat should help the putty set.
Step 8: Repeat Step 2 in Reverse
Step 9: Cleaning Up
Remember to wash and take care of your skin. oil and chemicals can cause severe reactions.
