Front exhaust flex pipe fixed

So what caused this to wear? Well the front exhaust pipe hanger bracket and the muffler hanger bracket rusted off. I heard the exhaust rattling against the frame when I turned the truck off Last week. So I got down to have a look at it and found them hanging on to nothing. Took it to my local shop last week, put it on the lift and had new brakets welded in plus they order a new flex pipe. Today they welded in the new flex pipe and all is well for $150 total. The flex pipe cost $40 and the rest was labor cost. Not a bad price!!! considering Kia wants over $300 for the front pipe. Eyebrow Headbang Balloon

You beat my price. I paid $225 for the job in a local muffler shop (not Midas or any chain stores). They just cut the broken flex pipe and welded in a new one. My dealer also quoted $3XX.00 for the pipe (new) plus labor.

RE: Front exhaust flex pipe fixed

Had my flex pipe replaced and muffler replaced two months ago both having holes in it. The shop put on a Cherry Bomb muffler sounds decent...when I got there they had the resonator off and it took my starting the Sorento to know the resonator needs to be on with a Cherry bomb for sure! whole thing was a little over $500.

A friend of mine owns a shop and replaced both flex pieces for $120. Local Midas wanted $250 - yeah, right.
I also looked at option of getting the whole pipe from Rockauto.com for $145.

RE: Front exhaust flex pipe fixed

I had the exact same problem, but BOTH of the flex pipes were shot. Local shop did the same custom welding to replace both hangers as well as using two universal flex tubes and the associated custom welding. Cost was $330. Dealer wanted about $400 for the front downtube alone, not to mention what they would have charged to replace the pipe and muffler with the rusted off brackets (you KNOW they wouldn't offer to repair them). I was very satisfied with the deal I got!

At least you now know you do not have to worry about for as long as you have the Sorie!! I know the new stainless steal hanger brakets will remain where they are for a lot longer than the OEM and the flex pipe will not break either. Good to know its fixed!

RE: Front exhaust flex pipe fixed

I just completed the same repair myself. I have 200,000 Km on my sorie now. I replaced the front Y-pipe from Carquest in Halifax for 226$ cdn. I checked the other brackets as well and they were rusted off. I tacked them on but thats when the real problems started. I'll start a new post looking for "Fryed my ECM" help.
