To replace the exhaust tail pipe on a Chevrolet Captiva (C100/C140), begin by ensuring the vehicle is safely supported on jack stands or a lift to provide adequate clearance for working underneath. Locate the exhaust tail pipe, which is typically positioned at the rear of the vehicle and connected to the muffler or exhaust pipe. The tail pipe is secured to the exhaust system with bolts or clamps.

Using a suitable wrench or socket set, loosen and remove the bolts or clamps that hold the old tail pipe in place. Carefully slide the old tail pipe out of the exhaust hangers and set it aside. It's crucial to inspect the surrounding exhaust components for any signs of damage or wear during this process.

Before installing the new tail pipe, ensure it matches the specifications of the old one and has the necessary fittings to connect to the exhaust system. Apply a small amount of exhaust sealant to the connections to create a secure and leak-free seal. Slide the new tail pipe into position, aligning it with the exhaust hangers and fittings. Secure it tightly using bolts or clamps and ensure all connections are properly tightened. Start the vehicle and check for any exhaust leaks or unusual noises, making adjustments if necessary to ensure proper installation and optimal performance of the new exhaust tail pipe.
