      exhaust manifold c-clamps

      hello
      i checked my c-clamps, one of them is solid but the other one can be rocked a little left and right.
      also they have a little belly, as if they are too stretched.
      is it suppose to be this way?
      or maybe i should get the special tool and compress them?
      thx

      I'm not sure how they are supposed to be, but GAP sells new ones for $5 a piece

      i got new ones from gsf and they snapped right away when i tried to work on them with the u-shape clamp, so i put back the original ones.
      doesn't anybody know if they suppose to be loose or fit tight as hell?

      I would assume tight as hell because people that dont't have the proper tool pry then put with a screw driver and they go flying.

      I'm actually replacing my downpipe on my mk2 today that has the clamps. I bought new ones from GAP. They don't sell junk parts. I'm going to assume these won't snap but I'll let you know.

      No tool needed, just a $2.00 exhuast clamp!

      I don't know of a tool that squishes them.
      You might be able to squish them some other way,..
      but the tool is meant to spread them for installation.

      yup, they stock them right next to the skinney jeans and button up shirts. One stop shop for all your hipster needs.
