    Default Exhaust system diagram anyone? - 1.8 Petrol

    Anyone got a detailed diagram or series of photos of the components?

    Got a rattle coming from the box under the centre of the car (which I initially thought was the cat, until someone told me it's attached to the manifold).

    Need to work out which bits are separate and what I need to replace.

    Cheers

    It could be the flexi pipe which is roughly at or slightly behind the front wheels, not sur can't remember but somewhere about there. That's what the rattle was on mine.

    There are 2 cats, one on the down pipe, followed by flexi pipe then a main cat But as said probably your flexipipe or an exhaust hanger (or a heatshield coming loose if they have them on these?)

    As luke said, most likely heat sheild(mine fell off) or rusted through hanger. Luke on the 1.8 there is only the one cat, a manicat jobby.

    I'll put my money on the wire mesh that covers the flexi, it rusts at both ends as just slides up and down, it can simply be cut off, it does nothing.

    I just priced up the front section (down pipe, not including manicat and flexi all one piece) and centre section (middle box and pipework to Y) at VX this week, lets just say you'll need more than £400.....

    Tomorrow im off to Zorstec to get a price for just these two sections as I already have a Irmy Y and back boxes ready to bolt on.

    Bargain, I nearly fell over when he told me the price of the 2 parts. A Flexi from MIJ is only about £30, so I expected a VX one with downpipe to be £60ish, should have known better

    Im fairness mine looks like the original, so thats 7 years and 53k, so is not too bad value, if it wasnt for the bloomin hangers VX exhausts do seem to be quite long lasting. Keeping an eye out for a 2.0T centre section next.
