Hmmm blowing noise

Hi , hope you can help me with my 147 2002 plate.
Blowing noise has appeared sounding like an exhaust problem but noise is worse inside car.
Had new back box fitted as MOT is due in july , so that was my first thought but the noise is still there. Car runs well otherwise. Any ideas anyone

It could be the flexipipe on the front section of the exhaust. they often fail and sound aweful but you can't find a leak as its made of mesh. As we cannot hear the sound though its hard to diagnose. Perhaps make a vid and post it up

Has anyone fitted one of the clamp on replacement flexi's, and if so what do you think of them? Mines on its way out and they are a lot cheaper than a new front pipe

My exhaust front section sounds all rattle-y when torque is applied. I think the sound comes from the catalyzer?

Wonder how this problem happens... been this way when I got her. I'll change it soon and hopefully get a brand new, pure sound.
