"censored" flexi

Post by Sonac » 22/05/19 14:18

Blown the flexi on my B pipe. It's a JDM sheepdog exhaust so a custom pipe/
It's curved so I can't chop it off and put a clamp flexi on.
I can't weld for "censored".
Mechanic quoted me 2 hours labour. So after VAT over 100 quid without the part even.

What are my options? Exhaust shop? Was hoping for something under 100 preferably.

*note the oil is not a leak. I didn't have a funnel when I filled my oil and made a mess. I'll clean it when I can be "censored"

You get what you pay for. The garage has to remove the exhaust, cut and weld a new flexi in. £100 for 2 hours labour isnt bad providing they do a good job.
Doubt you will get it done properly for much cheaper
Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust,
If you don't take it out and use it it's going to RUST!!

+1

but if you remove and fit it yourself then the cost is only cut out and welding of new flexi
