I suggest spraying the spring bolt kit and the heat shield bolts with penetrating oil a couple days before the job.

Raise the front wheels up.  If you use a hydraulic lift make sure to use jack stands.  The jack can fail and lower the car, right onto you!

Remove any heat shields in the way and the spring bolt kit.  If the bolts are rusted on, cut them off.   

Remove the old exhaust flange gasket and any other debris present.  Pay attention to the gasket orientation as the new one will need to be placed in the same orientation.

Cut the rusted flange off the midpipe.  The part of the flange closest to the pipe should still be solid.  It is important that there is a raised ring of metal on the midpipe, this is what will hold the split flange onto the midpipe.   

Remove any loose rust from the face of the cat-back flange and the midpipe with the Dremel-3000 wire brush.  You can use a file to smooth out any sharp points left over from the cut off midpipe flange.

 

Has anyone seen my basement fix, C Flange Bracket, for exhaust flanges? This really works. I had to fix my leaks or my truck wouldnt pass inspection. Take a look. Works on various flanges, flat, doughnut, 2 or more bolts arrangements. Search videos for C Flange Bracket.

My wagon R giving black smoke too much ,oil level deficits 1 litter per 300 km,engine is remake now.problem is not solved.

Pretty good 'Ible! My 96 Outback has gotten to the point when its cold out, you can see the exhaust going up under the hood. Getting fumes inside as well. Thanks for explaining the need for flex, as I wondered why it wasn't simply wielded on.
Gonna go fix it as soon as I get the stuff.

Hi there my problem is my car oil coming from exhaust pls I need help to know what is problem

Hello All,

Recently my 1999 Subaru Legacy has been producing a lot of noise at idol and on acceleration.  After some probing, I found an exhaust leak underneath the cabin.  The leak is from a degraded gasket between two pipes in the exhaust system.

This instructable will detail how to repair the exhaust flange gasket between the rear catalytic converter and the Catback.  A video is included at the end showing the major steps of the repair.

What the heck is a Catback?

Automotive enthusiasts fully appreciate the fact that the concept of one size fits all should never have a place within the performance car industry. This is particularly relevant in terms of car exhaust systems. Specific configurations are able to enhance fuel efficiency, speed and power. However, stork or generic models can actually rob a performance vehicle of its unique characteristics. Tarmac Sportz has been offering quality products and services for over seven years and our selection of exhaust designs will ensure that demanding requirements can easily be met. Let us take a look at some of the variants that are offered as well as a handful of their benefits.

The top image is a diagram of an exhaust system from a car much nicer than mine.  For this instructable we will focus on the joint between the rear exhaust pipe and the midpipe.  The Cat-back refers to all exhaust components behind the last catalytic converter.

The joint between the rear catalytic converter and the cat-back is connected by two flanges with a spring and bolt kit.  The springs allow the joint to flex, which is important, a rigid joint would crack/fail during normal use of the vehicle (no give).  

The problem I am experiencing is two fold.  The gasket between the cat-back and the midpipe is completely worn out.  Additionally, the flange on the midpipe is completely rusted through and not serviceable.  Therefore in order to fix this I would have to buy a new midpipe (with catalytic converter and all its precious metals) for about 200$, alternatively I could have a muffler shop weld on a new flange (I wish I could do it myself but welding is above my skill set).  

What I decided to do is cut off the old rusted flange on the cat-back side, clean up the pipe, replace the gasket, and use a split-flange to connect the midpipe to the cat-back.
