147 JTD please help - exhaust part replacing?
I was driving along the road and suddenly heard a scraping noise on the ground after i went over a speed bump - quite slow - about 10-15mph.
I managed to inspect the underneath and get it home as it was close, but im not sure what i need to replace now.
The exhaust pipe looks to have sheared off at the point where it connects to the bottom of the manifold (it is flat, not curved up towards the engine) and (going from engine to back box) has snapped after the the turbo hose.
Please forgive me as my understanding of cars is poor so my choice of terminology maybe be incorrect, but i think it is the begining of the cat back pipe system?
My question is, what do i need to replace? The rest of the exhaust system looks fine, so what is the most economical repair I can do to it - ie replace just a part of it rather than the whole of the exhaust system?
Many thanks for you assistance.
