Gtv V6 Exhaust
I'm wondering if anyone out there can settle something for me or at least perhaps shed some light on a question I have. I am getting a horrible rattling noise from my front pipes. They appear to be fouling each other. I have done a bit of digging and notice that mine don't seem to have their spacer bracket in place so I have ordered one from my local main dealer (about 11 quid inc VAT if anyone is interested).
However, in the workshop manual, it shows an "intermediate support bracket" about half way along the long front pipe which looks like it slots into somewhere around the engine mount (My car seems to have a receptical for it). Needless to say, my long front pipe doesn't have this bracket/clamp. So I trotted off to my local Alfa dealer again armed with my chassis number and he assures me that it shouldn't be there on my car (only fitted to Pre-98 cars??). The front pipes are also different part numbers. My Local Alfa Specialist (Jamie at AlfaWorkshop in Royson) says that it should have one??
My car is a 99 and a CF2 (single Cat). Any advice?
