    Default Blowing exhaust flexi

    Noticed alot of carbon around my exhaust flexi on my 1.9 150 while it was up in the air for a service. Whats the best way to go about fixing it? I know the engine side of the joint is stainless and the other mild steel so thats going to make it awkward to weld a new flexi in. Anyone recommend somewhere in cambridge or norwich that can sort it?
