    Default ESTATE 1.9 cdti (120) Exhaust

    Gentlemen, I have failed........

    My search abilities have let me down and I now need to ask a question which has probably been asked millions of times - sorry!

    I bought a 2005 (full canbus) Vectra C 1.9 cdti Estate (120bhp 8v) two weeks ago, serviced it yesterday and found a few things which will need attention in the coming months.

    The car does have a DPF fitted, but my issue is with a rotten exhaust from the DPF back to the tail pipe.

    I'm struggling to find the parts (low cost please) I cant work out if the estate has a different exhaust to the hatch etc........ I have found various centre sections which have a silencer - but mine has NO middle box, just the DPF, then pipe, then back box.

    Any guidance would be much appreciated - and sorry again if this is a repost!

    Thanks Chris

    I'm sure the 120's don't have DPF.

    This one on eBay looks identical (but the seller says its from a 150 bhp)



    I'm pretty sure it looks like the one in this thread:

    According to one poster, the Signum, Veccy Autos and Veccy Estates all have them.....

    all estates in the uk have a dpf i think

    mine (belgium) has also a dpf and then a straight pipe till the back box.
    The cheapest thing to do is to replace it by a simple exhaust pipe welded by a good welder

    is the back box also rotten?

    Good idea about the centre pipe, but yes, sadly the back box has almost gone too
