Intermediate pipe for '02 9-3: beware of aftermarket clamps
Posted by Blue Devil (more from Blue Devil) on Sun, 26 May 2019 16:38:30
My intermediate pipe just rusted through downstream of the flex pipe, so I tried to save some bucks by getting aftermarket parts through Rockauto. The Walker replacement part itself fit fine, but the Bosal clamps (part number 254701) completely failed to press the pipes together. I ended up using the bolts from the Bosal clamps in my somewhat rusty factory clamps, and that turned out to work much better, even if the seal was still not quite perfect. Luckily the clamps are so cheap that trying to return them to Rockauto isn't worth the time and effort, but for those of you out there who may be doing this anytime soon, be careful.
