Flex pipes are flexible pieces of piping that fulfill an important role in a car's exhaust system by absorbing the vibration and movement of the car's transmission and engine. They also compensate for movement and flexing in the body of the car. By doing so, they absorb stress that might otherwise cause cracks, leaks and other damage. They also provide a breaking point if the muffler gets caught on something as you drive. With all this stress to absorb, the flex pipe that came with your car from the factory often needs replacement.
I found a video from Youtube which shows how to replace the exhaust flexible pipe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrGQptxGDTE
