    Default Catalytic converter.broken mounting.

    Just looked under my Vectra (2.2 direct z22yh).Is the metal braided silencer just behind steering rack the catalytic converter? Just found attaching bracket broken.Any idea how much this will cost?

    Thanks Dobs.

    Had another look.Can't see any wire coming out what what seems to be centre silencer box.So the braiding just after the downpipe is only a flexable joint.Have noticed wire/sensor passing through heat shield on exhaust manifold under bonnet at back of engine (2.2. direct Z22YH).Could this be the CAT.

    Thanks Dobs

    I have looked under the car and can see no cat and no wire.I have spoken to an exhaust centre and they say the CAT on the 2.2 direct (z22yh) is the (can) arrangement under the exhaust manifold at the back of the engine.Can anybody confirm this.They say the exhaust section from below hear to behind the flex joint is about £115.Anybody got an idea of price from VX.

    Thanks Dobs.
