1990 Legacy Exhaust Leak - Help - pic
Posted 12 February 2005 - 11:54 AM
Are these flanges supposed to be pressed together?
Thanks for any help!

The section the right has a small length of pipe protruding out. This has a conical gasket pressed down over it. The pipe on the right has a conical shape inside and fits over the gasket.
The idea is to allow some flex in the joint, kinda like a ball and socket.
If there is a leak here, you will probably need to replace both parts. Cost me ca. $ 1200, but that's Danish prices.
You could try replacing just the gasket, but I doubt that the joint will come apart without crumbling into pieces.
