I read this yesterday thankfully and this is how i fixed it.......


I dont know about this....

Youre using a household acrylic silicon used for kitchen and bathroom use. You need to use the high temp stuff in the automotive section. I hope it works for you but I dont have high hopes it will.

I thought about that so i put this hanger on the driver side near the very rear.
This way its the furthest away from heat.

Its rated up to 180* F

Where is the third one located? I can see one on each side of the back box.

Thanks, have to stick my head further under and get the torch. If its an aftermarket back box (eisenmann) will it still utilise 2 on the left side?

Got 2 of 3 done today. They were pissing and moaning about the one closest to rear bumper on passenger side and were saying they would have to take the bumper off, so didnt replace even though it it torn.

Can it be done leaving everything else on the car?

Yes, can be done without removing bumper or diffuser.....I've done it too many times....
IIRC, you need a 12mm socket with a short extension, since it needs to stay inside the bumper

OK, thanks for that. So I can leave the other two brackets bolted tight and just work on that one in isolation?

Might try this tomorrow if it stops raining!
