    Exhaust making a chirping noise

    Hello

    I have a 2003 MK4 SRi 1.8 Astra - standard Back box (Single pipe)

    When ticking over the exhaust makes a chirping (tweeting / squeeking) noise from the back end (tailpipe)...

    any ideas, or does anyone elses do this.

    Thanks

    John

    it might be rubbing up against something..grab hold of it and move it and see if it stops

    Check no one has stuffed something in it... I used to do that as a kid.

    Hi

    Well... there was a tiny hole in the join at the tailpipe where it exits the back box this was causing the chirping noise.. i didnt have any gun gum so I just splodged some super glue in there and its still all OK now...

    No more tweety pie for me !
