    stop blowing off (astra exhaust prob)

    Basically i have a a mk4 1.8 sri 2001 plate
    i was coming up to a round about in the wet and i braked and wheel spun off (due to the wet of course he he) and all of a sudden the cars exhaust starrted to blow like 50 x as load as normal

    i popped the bonnet to take a look and the elbow pipe that sends the exhaust up into the manifold and its flopping about the only way i can discribe it is that the section that looks like a huge tin can section with a gauze filter that goes into manifold is not fixed into manifold so this is flapping about and not sealing the exhaust fumes to go down the exhaust section and out the back

    so the car sounds like a sherman tank

    i rang a local garage he said sounds like i need a ned manifold/cat section

    i wanted to no if anyone can tell me is there just clamp that holds the cat to the manifold?

    or is it all 1 section

    Hope someone can shed some light

    Thanks
    Dan

    YES IT DOES.

    your cat has snapped from your exhuast manifold.

    mine did the same.

    just get the mechanic to remove the manifold and re'weld the cat back on to the manifold
