Default securing exhaust backbox

on my diesel i have a back box where the exhaust points downwards

latelly its been slightly lower then normal so i had a look. it seems its held by a rubber mount by the rear left wheel

the mount is still intact but its sagging.

i have secured it with cable ties now but the exhaust now clonks when you start it up (not able to move as much)

whats the best way to secure these and get it as high as possible considering the bend in the pipe

thanks

New rubber mount from ats is a couple of quid you can then lever up the pin that goes through the rubber so it is at your desired height.

I took off the cable ties as it made the exhaust rattle lol

I have had a look at both mounts and they look fine

Is the ats part a modification as I can't see a way to adjust mine?

IIRC it should be a metal strap.

I've bought two of these recently from Peugeot and the straps are a woven material, just like you might find on the strap of a rucksack. I would think the straps themselves would support the weight but the straps are a loop and where they join is a piece of plastic. I'm not so sure this plastic would survive the constant weight and bouncing of the exhaust.

Spot on Jack, you explained it better than my attempt!

"Braided metal strap" is the correct term!



And it does wear away eventually. They're about 15 from Peugeot.

Is this what I put around the exhaust mount? Isn't it cheaper to buy a new mount or are the straps above improved items
