Replacement rear silencer

I am in need of a new silencer as mine has snapped / come away from where the pipe fits into the main silencer housing. I have had a look at a few of the " universal " silencers on Ebay yet im not sure of one that will fit.

I would love to go and get a supersprint or something similar however I just cant afford it as I am saving for the Variator and cam belt replacement. Does anyone know of any universal ones that will fit or have a used one for sale ( that is not going for an arm and a leg ). I dont want to buy a standard back box only then to find an affordable silencer the day after.

Also is it possible to remove one of the centre sections to remove some of the restrictions and make use of the K&N cone I already have fitted.

Universal silencers are real hit and miss and the mounting points will be difficult to get right, there is a lot of work involved if you want it to be right so unless your handy with a spanner and an angle grinder, possibly welding set i would either replace with a stock item or let a garage do it for you.
If you fancy a challenge then make sure you measure the length you have under the car and get a silencer that will fit in the space.

I'm also searching for a rear silencer for my friend's 147 1.9 and ASMET (polish company) seem to have good prices.
Have no idea about the quality though. They do seem to be sporting some certificates...

@Binji: You're from Slovenia? If so, call Lastovcic in Samobor, near Zagreb( Croatia), outstanding Inox quality for great Price. I've paid for custom rear stainless steel Silencer 90€ ( 5 years warranty) Austrian TÜV guy told to me, much better quality then any Supersprint or Remus

I had a cheap universal ebay one on my old beemer years ago. Fitted badly, looked ****e and sounded terrible. Really badly made.

My advice would be try and get a good 2nd hand one, get the cambelt done and save for a decent one.

@leon2209 Thanks I heard about them but since my friend isn't really too bothered about the exhaust I will try to source something (even more) local I'm keeping them in mind for when I will need to renew the exhaust on my GT 3.2 though Where in Austria are you btw? I'm living very near the austrian border (Jesenice).

Have you tried to look at this :

Exhausts for Alfa Romeo 147 ?

Since the value of the £ has plummeted, the links below might be more, than Systemshock is willing to pay, but e.g. Binji and Leon might want to have a go at it.

At least you are sure the silencer will fit, and if you get the one available in stainless steel you will practically never have to be bothered with this again.

I'm having to get my money back via the bank. Have contacted many times and phoned with no answer. Avoid ordering from alfastumper.

£165 is too rich for me at the moment, I was looking around the £60 - £75 mark.

Sorry, - have checked and Erik is as always right, but at least those parts I've bought from EB-Spares (see my top link) have been fine - at least so far, and the delivery has been OK.

BTW, have been having this link sitting in my computer for a while :

http://alfaspareparts.com/index.php?...mftocfv06dt0m2

Since they are located in the UK this might also be an option for Systemshock, but does anyone know if this co. is really any good ?

The link EngholmP refer to has a rear silencer for a 1,9 JTDM. I'm quete sure that it will fit a petrol engine 147, too. At £ 45 it very cheap.

It's Neil Catlow's farm in Rossendale up in Northern England, it's a little Alfa graveyard. I haven't had any dealings with him but was a helpful chap when I was looking at service quotes back when I first bought my 147. You can be sure that it's genuine stuff.

Cheers mate.

Am no environmentalist , but I have actually saved a lot of money by buying recycled / second hand spare parts, especially when I was also driving an Alfa while studying at the university.

Actually even bought exhaust parts once from a crashed donor car with the original Alfa stickers still intact, for less than 1/3 of the OEM price.

@ Erik L.,

Cheers for your help. The links I wrote was actually just an example for further search, anyway

Personally, I wouldn’t dare to bother my fellow Alfisti with “Massey Ferguson” spares for a petrol engine, but you are a braver man than I am

Looking at exhausts for my Giulietta 120 TB I have found that the exhausts for it are the same as the diesel engined models. The cat and particle filters are of course different.

I would love to, but that's still over 150km away from me unfortunately. Maybe some time when you head through the Karavanke tunnel
