Exhaust On Bumper

Hi all,

I have an Ashley Cat-Back system, and I love the look of it and am infinitly pleased with how it look on the car in its position, but I don't know if it's safe where it is.

If you look, you'll see that the tips are touching the rear bumper, which I'm worried about because I obviously don't want to go melting the bumper!

Is it safe the way it is, or do I need to cut the bumper a little bit?

Thanks in advance for replies and advice,

Kynan Parris-Jones

I guess extending the recess will be ok as you already have a recess in the bumper. :yahoo:

Extending the recess in the bumper will weaken the bumper as the existing recess is contoured for strength and rigidity.

I would favour an exhaust heat shield trim to protect the bumper...........or lowering the tailpipes slightly if possible......(A combination of both would be ideal) :thumbsup:

What about an exhaust heat shield trim?

Sounds like a decent idea, but aren't they asses to fit?

why not get a longer exhuats rubber just to lower it 10 mm i did that on my old car works a treat just take it off the car take yours down to a garrage and say i want that but slightly longer ,

That would be a good solution if the car were to stay the way it is, but I'm going to be lowering it by 50mm+ and anything that increases the chance of scraping the exhuast with coilovers is a nono for me :lol:

I had this on my mk2 golf, had to do something as it melted the plastic which A-stinks and B-sticks to the chrome tailpipes.

I don't want to go to too much trouble to solve a small problem, but thanks for the help mate. I'm with RY on this one.

I guess that as a conclusion, Norfolk is right, I'll get a heatshield trim but I have three questions; A Where can I get one that will fit?, B How much are they?, C How hard are they to fit?

Thanks for all the help,

KP

My one was touching and melted my bumper :( not sure how much heat the 4age engine produces but the 4agze gets very hot some times and plus my one kicks out flames which don’t help lol

its best if you cut the bumper a little so it don’t touch :thumbsup:

exhaust pipes look nice what size are they k?

i would just get a different rubber mount which is slightly longer so that the exhaust sits a tad lower.

A heatshield is going to be stuck on the bumper and may look a bit weird. get the mount andlower it maybe 2-3mm and it should look good and oem without sticking a heatshield on.

Cheers mate, the pipes are twin 2" , whole Cat-Back from Ashley for £202

My main concern with new mounts is that its VERY awkward to get off and on again, I spent 2 hours just getting the old exhaust off......

I don't think that a shield would look too bad. I was thinking of getting one off an MG.

yea, well then again ur exhaust sits nice and flush in ur bumper. Put the headshield only on the underside it should look sweet. Hmm those rubber mounts are a bugger but its still a good idea. Normally an exhaust place wont charge more then £5 to change it if u have trouble doing it yourself.

But yea get the heatshield wise option. 2" HMM i like the size of the tail pipes and style.

Thanks mate, I love em to bits myself lol

I may get new mounts of the heatshield fails, but for now, I don't mind cutting up the metal to fit. I can do the exhaust mounts myself, but I wanted to keep costs down and in all honesty I can be bothered to go to the hassle of taking it off! :lol:

im guessing it was a big bumper version.

My mate had the same kinda issue on his polo. he used a high temp rubber to stop it melting and splitting the bumper from the tips, dunno if they are still around?

I think exhaust heatsheilds look super chav because, like you said, they have them on MGs!

Just lower the exhaust a tad, they arent that hard to do, especially with plently of WD40!

I will do what Farhan said; I'll just secure it under-neath the bumper where the exhaust touches. I have nuts and bolts that will do it just fine. But will still need to take off exhaust! :(

I'll do a little step-by-step if that would prove useful to anyone. :)

Cheers

    • Toyota statement on Russian local manufacturing and vehicle imports
      Like everyone around the world, Toyota is watching the ongoing developments in Ukraine with great concern for the safety of people of Ukraine and hopes for a safe return to peace as soon as possible

      As a company with operations in Ukraine and Russia, our priority in dealing with this crisis is to ensure the safety of all our team members, retailer staff, and supply chain partners.

      We are also monitoring global developments and will make necessary decisions as required.

      The business status of Toyota’s European operations is as follows:

      Toyota Ukraine has stopped all activities as of 24 February (Toyota Ukraine = sales and after sales operations; 37 retail locations; distributor owned by Sumitomo Corp.)

      Toyota Motor Russia will stop production at its St-Petersburg plant from 4 March and has stopped imports of vehicles, until further notice, due to supply chain disruptions (Toyota Russia = sales and after sales operations; 168 retail locations; and one plant in St Petersburg manufacturing RAV4 and Camry models for the Russian market with exports to Belarus, Kazakhstan and Armenia)

      Other manufacturing and sales operations in the rest of Europe are not impacted.

      Toyota affiliates in countries bordering Ukraine have already taken concrete actions to support Ukrainian employees and their families, including facilitating the transfer of close family members from Ukraine to other destinations with the provision of accommodation, food, and other support to meet their needs. Further humanitarian support is being planned and will be announced in due course.
