Exhaust rattle from exhaust trim

Fitted a GP rear and the exhaust is rattling against the trim. Anyone know of quick fix? It's just the offside that's causing the problem.

You may need the ford escort exhaust rubbers on the rear. There are some threads on here about them.

Thanks Mark. Wedged a small stone in the centre of the exhaust mount. Worked a treat and it's managed to stay in for a week at least.

mine does this, but seems to be only when the weather is cold or wet.

I might just replace it with a Milltek or something instead any excuse

that was [is] my idea... but it was constantly bothering me, especially with the A/C on.
this doesn't mean the Milltek is off the list now...

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but did you need to jack the car up to fiddle on with the exhaust hangers?

I must just be **** then lol.

I can barely see the hanger laid flat on the floor, let alone have enough strength and a good enough position to put something in between it.

What am I doing wrong? How did you guys do it?

what i did was taking a couple of pictures of the spot (idk if i still have them) to have an idea of what i was fighting against

then I put my hands inside to feel it's shape... (I know that sounds ambiguous... purposedly, so)

then, standing on your knees, next to the rear wheel, you grab the pipe, pull it down from the inside of the rear arch and from the exhaust tip (using a mop or sthg long that fits in the pipe, to get more leverage)
then you put something hard between the two metal parts causing the rattle (the exhaust tip and the bumper trim) ... to keep them further apart, spreading the bush (again, ambiguous, I know... )

finally you put something in the middle of the bush...

so if you got it right, you'll have cured the exhaust rattle of your car, otherwise, in 9 months time you may have an enlarged family!
either way, it's an improvement .. a happy ending

Mine turned out to be a missing hanger all together

It failed the MOT due to this and something else, rectified with a new hanger and it sorted the problem.

Still got the Milltek though

you can do that as well, but i'd rather not pull down with force the exhaust, with the car on a stand and me underneath... you never know..
i just got a little dirty, no scratches, knuckles fine.. all good... :P
just be careful with the edges of the metal parts (exhaust and trim) as they are rather sharp

Just had a play around, couldn't get in to the exhaust hanger, going to have to study this further lol.

Taking the wheel off won't really help I don't think, as the hanger is past the wheel, just near the splitter, unless I took the arch trim off, which is more hassle.

I'm tempted to just hacksaw off a couple of inch, the only problem being I don't know how high the cut tailpipes will sit, and whether they will be blocked.

they won't be blocked, but part of the smokes will get on the inside of the bumper... not something i'd fancy ..
just try to follow the exhaust pipe using your hand and you should reach the hanger

later, after work, i'll try to see if i still have those pics
