Exhaust tip repair on 87 Carrera

Is it possible to rip off the old exhaust re-round the main inner part of the ehaust and put a new tip on, or.........am I looking at a new muffler?

I see a lot of 911s with their original exhaust and bent tips so may assume it's more hassle than its worth?

Pic of the problem

The exhaust tips come off. Pelican sells one by Dansk. You can change it or try to get more miles out of the old one with an exhaust pipe expander.

VINO: I've fixed a number of those; use a punch and hammer to remove the old deco tip. Alternate side to side (I know, the body will get in the way) until it's loose - it'll come off. If you have a Dremel you might be able to put a slice in it, and peel the deco tip away, but the punch method works best for me. To make the muffler tip round again I use a large socket, put it on a short extension, and hold it inside the tip while tapping against the outside. I guess that a piece of large dowel will also work, I like using a socket because it makes a very strong surface. Wear safety glasses!

I'm pretty sure that Performance Products, and probably Pelican, have replacement deco tips.

Thanks from this direction. too. My slanted driveway plus a nice rounded roadway have not been kind to my tip. I grind it almost everytime unless I go really, really slow . . .

Coming back to this after almost two months, sorry.

Exhaust tip is off, thanks for the advice!
I eventully had to cut the tip off and use a pipe expander with a hammer to make the muffler end round, or as round as it would get.

Now getting the new tip on seems to be a pain

Do you guys relieve the notches on the new tip then slide it on, then bang the notches back in? Do you press it on with amazing force? Special tool for this job?

Let me know!

Thanks!

Vino:

I just held mine at what looked like the right angle with a block of wood across the end, then tapped it on with a rubber hammer. Worked great. I didn't line the notches up with anything, but the new tip is on there tight and looks way better!

Good luck,

Paul.

I thought that there were some small dimples stamped into the inside area that slips on the mufflers tip, then the new deco tip is driven on with a block of wood, till the little dimples are far enough on the actual muffler outlet. Good luck!! Tony.
