    Default blowing flexijoint in exhaust

    This is the first thing ive had to look at on the vectra, got under the car tonight and the blowing is coming from a flexijoint in the downpipe.

    the pipe looks like a nice cheap part (i hope) has anyone had to change the same pipe?

    im considering putting it into the local garage as there is a sensor and im unsure how tight it might be,

    Can anyone advise if its a easy driveway job or best to garage it.

    n will it be expensive.............hope not

    Its a 2.2petrol 2003 SRI

    I can nearly guarentee you it's not a nice cheap part as you have to buy the whole downpipe lol.

    Best to take it to a custom exhaust place and they can weld a new one in for about 50-60 quid
