04 1.9 exhaust advice please - hole in flexipipe - stupotty
Hi Guys, hoping you might be able to point me in a good direction on this as I'm at a loss....

my 1.9cdti vectra has an unrepairable hole in the braided flexipipe section (near front roughly under dashboard) which my local vauxhall dealer quoted me £400 to replace. they were unsure (because they are idiots) as to whether it was part of the cat or not. my dilemma is; as it's noisy but not urgent do I sit on till it REALLY goes, as the £400 option is the only one, OR
does anyone know if I can just replace the flexipipe, and at a considerably lower cost????? and if so, where???

anything you know would be massively appreciated.


{guessing you meant 04 and not 94 for the year?}

take a trip to your local exhaust centre for a quote, just don't get sucked in. They may offer an alternative, its possible they may be dearer so don't be to harsh on your dealer until your sure. I guess you mean 2004?

some car part suppliers CAS GSF etc can supply flexi pipes in different lenghts/bore size however this brings its own problems like it having to be welded into the correct position off the vehicle (going to be a lot cheaper than £400 but its a lot of mucking about )this is assuming that the pipe is in an otherwise suitable condition to be welded plus gaskets broken studs etc, Regards TB

i had a quick internet search.
could not find a 1.9 diesel version but on a site called "cats direct" ( no connection with them) they have a 2.0 diesel cat with front down pipe for a price of £102 delivered, mainland uk. 2 year guarantee. if you go to their site, there are pictures of these parts
no mention of a 1.9 diesel vectra whatsoever. only 1.7, 2.0& 2.2 are you sure yours is 1.9.
could always give them a call about the 1.9 to see if they do one.

Yeah the problem with internet suppliers,etc. is that pretty much everything seems to be for the vectra B (95-02) with the 1.7,2.0 etc. sizes. Someone has mentioned MIJ in Walsall to me. can anyone recommend this lot???
