    I'd be interested in th answer to this too - BUMP!

    After my 'little incident' I can see the mesh cover where the manifold meets the exhaust proper underneath the car is quite tatty and I'm thinking I might just take it off...

    Yes you can just cut it off but you will possibly find out the flexi itself is broken too.

    You wont see it being broken inside the flexi wire stuff so it would have passed.

    The wire rots away wheres its connected to the exhaust, but the actual flexi should be fine. Mines been like this for nearly the last 2 years.

    Mines still there, just left it as it is. I can move it back and forward past the flexi.
