New Silencer... worth a DIY?
In an effort to save some pennies, I have been doing some of the little things our 02 147 has needed lately... service, battery, rear hatch, brake pads...
On the last MOT we were warned about the silencer, as it's rusting, although it looks like it's from the outside in, so until I sound like a boy racer or it falls off I am leaving it..
What I wondered what if this was something worth tackling myself, or is the £97 quoted at my local garage make it not worth the time and effort?
If a new/nearly new silencer is £40-50 for instance, and the job will involve welding and other things requiring more than my basic tools, then I may just save up.
If, however; the part is cheaper and it's just a matter of some bolts and WD40, then it's worth a bash.
Thoughts and experiences are very much appreciated!
