    Default Exhaust flexi on 1.8 petrol...

    Did my backbox a couple of weeks ago and it was a bit of a pain to get off...

    Having seen a post on here about flexi pipes, started thinking that I've probably strained mine quite a bit (it was already split slightly at both ends)

    Is the flexi simple enough to replace on my car? Or is it an expensive pain in the backside like it was on the Vec B (downpipes, flexi and cat, all in one part)

    The flexi mesh bit seems to separate quite easily, mine is like this and think Leonvectra posted pictures showing his the same lately, but as long as it is not leaking inside it your exhaust is still ok. You can get a replacement flexi part that welds in to the original pipe but unless you have a welder at home your probably just as well just having the whole front pipe replaced. However........ I have never ever seen a front pipe unbolt without first being heated up with the aid of a gas torch, they are usually a complete PITA to do and normally best left to a garage to do.
