Exhaust interchangeability

HI all

Just a quick question for the experts.I have a 98 146 1.6 TS.

My exhaust has just come apart big style and I need a cheap replacement quickly. Unless I splash out on a new system I thought I could fit a used system but the 1.6 seems difiicult to find in breakers.

So the question is will a system off another 146 fit, there seem to be plenty of 2.0ti in scrap yards but not a lot else.

The car has the later slip-on exhaust fitting as you would expect from the age.

I have searched and there is a difference in part number AR148G for the 1.6TS and AR150G for the 2.0ti but the systems look the same.

I need to get this sorted this weekend so any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks


Got my laptop talking to my ECU!

PM me if you want faultcodes found/cleared and are in derbyshire!

Re: Exhaust interchangeability

I have not checked the parts disc, but I would feel fairly confident the only difference is the chrome tip on the end, hence the different part numbers. However all a part disc will show is that the numbers are different, not how or why.

eg a 147 1.6 and 2.0 use the same exhaust as they both have a chrome tip if that helps any.

Re: Exhaust interchangeability

Thanks for the offer but got a complete 2.0ti system from a nice chap in Melton Mowbray for 40, fitted this morning, works a treat.

Cheers for all the help though.

(As far as I could tell there does not seem to be any difference between the ti and 1.6 TS systems)
