HOW TO MEASURE AND FIT A NEW FLEXIBLE PIPE

Firstly it is important to measure the outside diameter of the exhaust pipe near to where the damaged flexi pipe is fitted, this can be done in a number of ways, the best method is to use a Vernier gauge, if you do not have a Vernier gauge then simply wrap a piece of string around the tube and measure the length on a ruler, you can use the guide below:

This is a guide only.eg your string measures 164mm then the chances are your tube size is 2 inch diameter tube.


Tube Diameter in MM

Circumference in MM

45

13/4

141

50.8

2

160

57

21/4

180

2.54

198

239


The second measurement you need to find is the overall distance of the Flexi pipe, see Image below:
