    Default EXHAUST flexi pipe

    Has anyone had a problem with the above named part.
    Whilst driveing my car i noticed it sounded a little different. On checking under the car i noticed what looks like a flexi pipe just in front of what i think is the first cat and just after the down pipes. The flexi pipe is freely moveing at both ends..

    Do i need a new section or can this be fixed easy

    Any help you guys can give would be greatfull

    Thought my car was sounding different. Suppose I will have to look around to sorting the pipe out.
    Did you manage to get just the flexi pipe.?
    I notice you can buy replacements which you can get welded on or clamped

    Vehicle : Vec C Estate X 2

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : CDTi 150

    Year : 55&56

    Mileage : MANY

    Default

    Section between the DPF and the cat went on mine. cost about £35 and was just a case of unbolting the flanges front and back and throwing the replacement part in with new gaskets. Pretty easy job, but a pain in the arse if you're trying to do it on the drive as the top bolt on the rear flange in near impossible to access.

    Have fun

    Just rang vauxhall for a price. Nearly £600 for the part as it has the two down pipes
    and the cat with it. . Not what I need with a new baby on the way.
