Having problems with your 1999 Ford Escort ?
What is the part called on an exhaust system which is fabric/carbon wool which is under the center of the exh/sys on a FORD GLX Mondeo 1999 Diesel Est. It is torn in half and flapping about and may only be for noise reduction. Or...it may be important ? TIA Tony
Sound deadener only
It is called the "flex pipe" and it there so keep the exhaust from breaking off manifold bolts as the engine moves up and down when rev or idled so,yes you need to replace it.
