147 1.6 Catalytic Converter

Hi guys,

been trying to get this 147 through a MOT and everything was fine until the dreaded emissions test. It passed on the HC and CO output but epic failed on the oxygen / lambda levels.

So I thought it was a leak at the front, and i found one at the catalytic converter flange. Unbolted the catalytic converter to find it was empty. Completely empty, nothing inside it at all. I know about a year ago the car coughed on the carriageway and a dust cloud came out, so I guess that was the remains of it.

This is annoying cos I'm trying to sell the car, but this is another expensive 'FIX' to get it out of the drive.

Anyone have a good condition Cat or New one for a reasonable price?

Many Thanks
