    Default How Much£?£?£

    I have had a few problems with a noisy Drive chain so i woke up this morning to take it to VX. On the way i opened the door and it seemed loud. seems i have a hole in the cat converter
    1st MOT next month as well

    How much do these cats cost now days.If VX refuse to do the chain its guna be one hell of a expensive month. I though cats lasted longer than 32K??

    Any ideas on the price anyone??

    If the first MOT is due next month then it is still just under 3 years old. That means it is still (just) under warranty. Get to the dealer quick and they should replace it for free.

    I would be very much surprised if there is a hole in the cat, there may be a "blow" from a loose joint, have you knocked the exhaust or shook it loose ie over rough ground. My wifes vectra b is still useing the original cat, of caurse there may be a fault with your cat though.

    I used to have a Citroen and the cat went on that. Wasn't covered by warranty and was over £500 to replace. Had to replace the rest of the exhaust too!!

    Cat is covered under 3 year warranty and does not need VX servicing to have been done. Genuine parts and service inteval needs to be complied with. Exhaust system is not covered but cat is specifically included.
    Page 54 of service booklet states under
    'Exclusions from the 2nd and 3rd Year Warranty' -
    Normal wear and tear parts -
    Ancillary drive belts, brake friction material, bulbs, clutch facings, exhaust pipes and silencers (catalytic converters are covered), fuses, shock absorbers, MacPherson struts, tyres, wiper blades, wheel balancing, handbrake adjustment and any accessories which are not part of the vehicle's original specification.


    So take it down for VX to replace under warranty. HTH
