All vehicles use a variety of rubber rings within their exhaust systems to maintain the integrity of the entire system. Without the play that is offered by the inclusion of rubber rings between the exhaust pipes, the silencer boxes and the catalytic convertor, the exhaust system would degrade very soon and have to be replaced. This ring is an inexpensive component to purchase and can be fitted by any registered exhaust fitment shop. Do not allow the integrity of the exhaust to be damaged by not replacing this part.
The best time to check if the rubber rings on the exhaust system are worn or damaged is either during the annual service of the vehicle or by taking the vehicle to an exhaust fitment centre. Your mechanic can easily check the status of this part by putting the vehicle up on a hoist and checking the exhaust system under the car. This check takes a matter of minutes to determine if the rubber rings on the exhaust need replacement.
The easiest place to purchase the rubber rings for the exhaust is to simply locate the part online, from the comfort of your own home, which incidentally requires no driving around, and place your order. Punch in the year model, make and engine capacity of the vehicle, select the part you require, make the easy and secure online payment and then sit back and wait for the part to be delivered either to your door or to the workshop of your choice. Gone are the days of driving long distances to try and find a parts store that probably doesn’t have the part.
