    Default Rotten muffler - Options!?

    My muffler on my 2007 with 231k miles is rotted out. Everything from the muffler back to the cat is in very good shape. It was actually replaced a few years ago.

    I don't think Volvo will sell just the muffler. Has anyone done any backyard problem solving like finding some other standard mufffler from the auto parts store that can be modified? I would really appreciate any recommendations. I am confident someone on here has already. One up with a creative solution!!

    I have already been to a couple of wrecking yards but all have been also too rusty.

    Thanks!

    I found an aftermarket one at a reasonable price at parts geek.

    Not many people on the site anymore I see. Not many of these left I guess!

    Good move. I bought a new aftermarket muffler from UPSW Auto Parts. I cut the old one off using a Sawzall and attached the new one with a clamp that came with it. Fit perfectly. My car is a 2007.

    It was the same price as the one you bought but a different brand. I almost bought it there but I wasn’t familiar with that website. Glad it fit. Hopefully mine will as well!

    There are a number of XC70s left, but by now my guess is they are owned by enthusiasts who keep them pretty well sorted.
