    There is this strange rubber cylinder mounted to exhaust pipe of my 2005 vz commodore Equipe, towards the rear left of the car. Its held on by a welded bracket and has clearance all around to the chassis. The rubber cylinder sits parallel to the exhaust pipe so it cant be a rubber mount.

    I cannot find single picture from any google search.. Im completely stumped :eek:

    If anyone has any idea please let me know. Thank you

    Exhaust hangar? They are rubber. They are a kind of red in colour.

    Thanks for the insight but its 100% not those. Its a solid feeling rubber cylinder around 10 or more cm long and a diameter of around 4cm. I could try and grab a picture since i cannot find a single one on the whole of the internet :confused:

    My 07 VZ wagon has the same.
    I believe it is a sound/drone/vibration damper

    I was thinking about that but its just in a strange spot, also strange to how i cant find any information on it, even on those mechanic/workshop manuals.

    I remember either asking on here or at the GMH Dealer and was told a damper/dampner

    Yup, that seems to be what it is. Not much info comes around on it - or even replacements seem rare
