Go to Wickes and buy a roll of builder's band for a few pounds and a few bolts and make a new hanger for your silencer.
So where does this bit go then ?

A made a new hanging bracket for the rear silencer of my pug 406, it lasted at least two years, it was still going strong when I sold the car on :thumbsup:

Halfords do a very large jubilee clip in stainless that fits perfect - done a few now.

Have a read of my thread entitled (not suprisingly) "Exhaust Clamp".
I used builders band and it's still holding strong after 12 months.
Passed an MOT with it aswell. :thumbsup:

Stainless exhaust systems are only any good if you intend LONG term ownership of your vehicle and I mean long term otherwise the costs do no add up ! Be aware that the original system will last very many years and should a section need replacing - usually the rear section - it will be a low cost item. Original systems will easily last ten years if hung correctly and often much more with fifteen years oft reported.
Should anyone actually spend their money on a full stainless system then please do ensure that ALL of the hanging brackets are made of stainless also as otherwise they will corrode and the whole system will fail as a consequence.
Personally and from experience I'd say that stainless is best left to motorcycles.

I agree with Geoff.My old C15 tailbox was replaced at 6 years,the rest was still on @ 180,000 & 9 years.:thumbsup: I would add that I used Bosal or Unipart exhausts when I was in (on) the game. Both are well made.
