Default '88 Camry wagon exhaust


Hi -

Toyota Camry wagon here - exhaust needs some work (wife's car sounds like
it has a header; a crappy header :-)).

Underneath the car (and looks to be downstream of the CC) is a metallic
mesh encircling the exhaust pipe (the mesh looks like steel braiding) and
right underneath the driver's compartment this mesh enclosed item is (was)
attached to a flange, which leads to the muffler, by a maybe 6" piece of
exhaust pipe:


------------\
\__________( )_________||
( ) ||
mesh thing ( ) || --> to muffler
/----------( )---------||
------------/
break flange

Between this flange and the mesh-encircled pipe it has broken away
(there's a bracket holding the pipe up an inch or so behind the break).
I'm not familiar with the mesh-enclosed thing but will have to go to
Midas? to have this break fixed. Attaching to the existing flange is no
big deal - but the upstream end will have to be attached to this
mesh-encased thing and I'm not sure if it can be welded to or not (part of
my question).

Can someone tell me what this mesh-encircled thing might be, how the
tailpipe is attached to it, and possibly what dollar range the repair
sounds like it might be in? I want to know what I'm looking at before I
go to a repair place.

Thanks.

Mike

Any suggestions on where else I can get this work done? I need 6" of
exhaust pipe replaced. If I could weld I'd do it myself.

Tube welding is an acquired art. Here in OZ, arepair of that nature should
be relatively inexpensive ($100 max)

There is also a variant of that poem for Valentine's Day:

Guy to his sweetheart:

" Rose's are red, violet's are blue
I've got one yay-big, and it's all for you"
