Broken silencer

I’ve had a strange squeaking sound coming from the rear of the car for a while now. Found out that it was a broken silencer hanger.

I havent had time to learn welding and I had a slightly tight schedule pressing on, but luckily I had the second similar silencer (the beaten one that came with the spare engine/gearbox) next to the car. Funny thing – I just cleaned the second silencer – didnt know that I would end up swapping it 😀

The change didnt take that much time and I next day I drove about 200km with MR2, without that annoying squeaky sound 🙂


Doesnt show up very well but there is a hairline crack at the base of the hanger, going somewhat vertically next to weld.
