Default 94 Camry Exhaust System

anybody know what's under the metal braid section of the exhaust system
pipe forward of the catalytic convertor. I have a leak under there and
the rest of the pipe and convertor are just fine.

I believe thats called the Flex Pipe and it is an integral part of the
exhaust system It reduces stress to the fixed exhaust pipe from when
the engine torques by twisting slightly. The muffler shop can just cut
that section out and replace it with another one.

Its a length of flexible exhaust pipe. Under the mesh is the similar type of
thing you see on the adjustable angle pipe on desk-lamps ie interlocking
spiral metal. They will eventially wear-out, especially if your engine moves
backand forth a fair amount or just age. A '94 is not a bad run.

Dont know how much Toyota charge for it,..but its not that uncommon,..so an
exhaust place should have the stuff to repair yours.
