    Just Broke My Car:(

    there i was happily driving down the road then my engine note changed and sounded like a tractor and a big scrapping noise occured. so i thought mmmm, got out and found my exhaust on the floor hanging by the back box :'( As it come out of the engine the flange that connects to the exhaust has become unwelded.

    Need a very cheap fix!!! basically the flexy joint is scuffed through the meshing, the downpipe is erm broken. Not sure about that cat as it bit too dark to have a proper look. so need to know how much i shud b expecting to pay.

    Car is 1.6 8v and the cause of the prob i believe to be the centre support has rusted through so all weight was in 2 places

    kwik fit wanted to take £220 off me cos the downpipe connects to the cat! So i went down and had the 2 bolts that connect downpipe to mainfold taken out as i spent all day trying to get them off and they heated them and used air gun on them. Also been up the motorist centre and ordered a downpipe without a cat for the sum of £26! So jus got to clip it all together and hopefully it is as easy as that
