The Mrs's corsa B 1.2 on a S plate exhaust is blowing from centre box. Need to replace it, Shall I just get a cat back? She would like a slightly bigger tailpipe but doesnt really care as long as I can fix it cheap (women hey). Any advice on anything cheap? Do I have to replace whole of cat back bar the backbox? (unless she wants a big tail pipe)

What other exhaust will fit? Is the 1.4 the same, the 1.0? Does the corsa C exhaust fit?


Cheers

Sheldon

She doesnt want loud, just a bigger tail pipe. shes quite happy with that for £30. I know its just silencer so will keep same back box, but shes a cheap skate.lol

get someone to give it a few revs and you check underneath the car to see any gas spraying out or run your hand under the exhaust system

Get someone to put a rag over the end of the tailpipe and get underneath the car. You'll hear where it's coming from. It might be a tiny gash somewhere. Look all over the backbox & down the tailpipe.
