Chilli had to have the join between the old part thats left of her exhaust & her new/old miletk repaired on her mot in mid jan as it was sucking into to much air & failed the emmisions. It was done by my local garage which i am never sure if they bodge/do prob etc, i never liked using them since my wheel issue last year but didnt have any choice at the time.

Its never been a perfect fit as never can get the brackets/pipe etc to sit & stay central & through the hole in my rear bumper.

I am not sure if its me being my usual paronid self with her like it normally is Wink or is becuase i have had my windows down & gone bck to the short journeys but my miltek is sounding noisy again (which i am not complainig about Razz ) & she is feeling on & off like it may have gone again.

Would it split again that quickly or have they bodged do u reckon.

I am going to get my mechanic to have a look but hes away at the mo

Any ideas

The miltek will b 2yrs old in july/aug

Get a second opinion ror even a third opinion from some other garages Dawn.
If you can find an exhaust fabricator and fiting specialist they will do a much better job as they do more than just hang and bolt them on as it were. Wink
