    HOW TO FIT A NEW EXHAUST Mk4 16V

    Hi

    I wasnt sure where to post this but here it goes, can anyont tell me how easy it is to fit a whole new exhaust to my Mk4 Vaxhall Astra 1.6 16v 1998 Eco-tech. I have had the back box changed by a garage a few months ago but it still sounds rough. so I need to do the whole thing. any help would be great

    cheers

    steve

    Hard work if you dont have a ramp.
    You'll also have trouble getting the old one off as it'll be rusted.

    Highly recommend going to a garage.

    If you're not happy with what you have had done, go back and get it sorted.
    ...or go elsewhere.

    I would suggest wire brush then penetrating oil (WD40 or such) on the threads and let it soak for a little while. Also handy to have a helping hand to help with the weight and all. Other than that jusp in and get dirty. 40 mins top! easy job really.
