Hello, new to this forum.

I have what appears to be a common problem, a loose exhaust flange on my 2008 Versa.
It looks just like this:

Has anyone been able to find a flange repair kit that fits?
I have been looking for something like this:
https://www.amazon.com/Walker-Exhaust-36130-Flange-Repair/dp/B00G6UF26U

They are quite common but I have not been able to find one the right size.

Thanks


Give this a look and see if this might help:

When I put a tri y header on my sidekick I was not able to find the right donut to go in the flange between the header and cat. I ended up going to midas muffler and for 170 bucks they cut the flanges off and put a piece of pipe over both ends and clamps effectively sleeving the connection.

It could of been done cheaper, but I was too sick and sore to crawl around on the ground.

Absolutely agree that the best option is to cut off the flanges on the pipe and muffler, and to place a connector with clamps between them. I replaced a muffler (with flange that had cracked), and it only lasted 2 years. The flange connection is a susceptible failure point, that will continue to cause recurrent problems. The definitive solution is to eliminate the poorly engineered flange joint with a piece of connecting pipe (that slips over the end of the pipe from the resonator and over the pipe from the front of the muffler).
