Removed and replaced the Flex pipe. Now my Viggen is much quieter!





I had to use a 18-inch pistol grip bar clamp, set to spreader mode rather than clamp mode, to push the muffler 1/2-inch forward so that the new flex pipe would connect to both of its mating spherical exhaust joints. I had the spreader push against the body pinch weld seam beneath the rear bumper. Now I understand Walt's comment regarding using split clamps on the flex-pipe to muffler connection to bring things into alignment. I think the spreader clamp is easier.

I also removed the shattered front driver's side inner fender and replaced it with a used piece from the local Pick-n-Pay lot. I had to look at all seven of the 9-3's on their lot to find a car with an inner fender in great condition. Most of the cars did not have one!

After the replacement inner fender was installed, I installed a new Viggen driver's side front splash shield to replace the missing shield. I think most of the damage to the inner fender was caused by not having the splash shield which is its lower support.

No photos, but both of these jobs were a Royal PITA! I had to go to Lowes to buy a part for my Viggen. The square nylon block that the center anchoring screw for the splash shield threads into was missing. All I had was a square hole in the front cross-member. Luckily Lowes sells some auto trim fasteners, and a 1/4-inch square license plate screw anchor was the right size.

BTW - Anyone need a brand new Non-Viggen driver's side front splash shield?? I have one. The result of not scanning far enough down on the catalog page when ordering.
