How much/how easy is it to fix a blown exhaust?

Mine has recently gone, I think in the middle somewhere (haven't had the car up). Sounds like a tractor under acceleration and vibrates a lot! Its also very noisy on a motorway cruise.

Am I right in thinking that the exhaust has gone or could it be something different?

I've just had the middle box replaced on mine, was quoted 100 at national, 81 at ATS then 58 at wirral tyres in bro borough, sounds like yours will need doing too.

If it is really loud it is likely there is a major hole in the exhaust or a pipe has completely separated and is beyond repair. The exhaust gases combine inside the exhaust and attack it so it really is quite common for them to go like this. You will be looking a replacing the part of the exhaust that has failed, but it is worth checkintg the rest of it at the same time. If all the parts are a similar age it is likely other bits will fail in a similar timeframe and if you have the cash it will save you hassle to get them all done at the same time. Good luck with it, its worth shopping around to get it cheaper.

If its the middle section, won't that be the cat?

I got a back box for my 306 from Euro Car Parts, it was only about 25 and easy enough to fit.

Cover the tail pipe with the car running and see if it makes the noise worse. This will force the exhaust gasses out of any hole that has developed.

Price - depends on where it has gone and what sections need replacing. A local garage will do an exhaust replacement and may well be cheaper than the big exhaust / tyre specialists.

I had a hole and small split in a pipe patched it couple of times and its got me through 2 mots. Tried the basic paste stuff but that blows out after a while. My longest repair was metal gauze paste an empty tin can and 2 large jubilee clips. Cover the hole with gauze and repair paste , cut the empty bean can along its length and put over the repair. Tighten the can down on the repair with the jubilee clips. cost about 10.
