Thumbs Up 156 exhaust flexi repair...

The flexi joint was blowing slightly when I bought the car, but over the last couple of months it's deteriorated, and the flexi was now held on by a prayer... Now, as it's a 2001 156 SW, 1.8TS - it has the twin pre-cats on the downpipe. £370 to replace the section with the flexi joint! Or £28 (inc delivery) for a flexi repair section from a Polish seller on eBay! (Very quick delivery by UPS!)

Exhaust came off with only 1 sheared stud on the manifold flange, and a swift angle-grinder-fest removed what was left of the old flexi. Simple matter of mating up the ends and repair section, and applying instant sunshine.

Result speaks for itself...

My flexi also needs sorting.
Its one of those jobs I cba with at the moment and to be honest its only where the flex has come away from the pre cat manifolds and needs welding again.

Good job though.
