Kinda hard to see, but I'd probably try and fudge some flex pipe in there... Sux to have such a new truck do this; hope it doesn't void any warranty by patching your own fix on there till mack figures their sht out.

Looks like its on the out let  side no big deal However not being able to get one is a big deal He can't modify it its a warranty item the bafoons with throw it back in the dealers face and not pay  if they do a mod without getting permission to do so! So much politics to warranty you wouldn't believe it! once the warranty is dun you can do what ever you need to do ! in my mind a peice of jobber flex and 2 band clamps and your done FIXED!

Throw a patch on, run it. When they say they have a fix put the broken POS back on there and they won't know the difference.

Part of the reason some of us run old dogs. They cost a fraction, and don't have engineering defects that haven't been addressed yet.  Volvo got your money, they don't care about you now. They'll wait for a customer to engineer the fix, void that customers warranty, call the fix their own and put it on everyone else's truck. Meanwhile you're stuck with a truck you can't use but still have to pay for.

And I call BS on that taking 2.5+ hours to change out that elbow. It's two V clamps and you're cruising.

This happened to our one Anthem that we got . It’s clean exhaust at that point so it was not a huge deal at the time . As long as the hot exhaust was not blowing on anything important.  The drivers never noticed it and we only found it during service/inspection.  Both of my buddies new GR ‘s  ( the new GU) have had the same issue. Our last new CXU’s with the common rail engines and one box SCR/DPF have not seemed to have this problem.
