    astra back box

    I noticed today that my exhaust was nearly touching the floor. when inspecting i noticed one missing rubber mount and the other detached from the back box. Is this a regular occurrence for the standard astra 1.6 8v hatch exhaust to do?? should the mounts be free to move?? Also how many mounts are there normally across the whole system?? Advice welcome, cheers.

    Cheers. I ordered one off ebay strait away for £3.50. I could still do with finding out how many the whole system is meant to have, as they are cheaper to replace then an exhaust. Iv try'd googleing it but to no avail. not been driving long and not too mechanically minded. Suppose i should invest in a manual from helford's really, or join the aa lol.

    the manual is cheaper from amazon!

    Inspect the others they could be ok. There are 3 at the backbox and 4 in the middle section Yes a breakdown service is a good idea, even if you can fix cars youre ****ed if your in the middle of nowhere!
