Its only a bit of bent round bar welded to the chassis isn't it? Round bar can be bought in meter lengths in B&Q or if its 1/4 inch (I think its bigger) a very large nail (like 5 or 6 inches) may yeild enough bar to do the job.

If the chassis is rusty there and you don't fancy welding it you may be able to bolt comething through the boot floor with a flat plate as a spreader. You may be able to adapt purpose made exhaust brackets as sold in accessory shops.

Jeremy's right its not a seperate part, just a bar of metal with a 90degree bend in it which is then welded to the side of the boot.

We just made another one, but this time I welded it to a plate, then repaired the boot, then riveted the plate to the boot and caked it in sealant and hammerite :lol:

I replaced mine with a 8" length of angle iron (dexion), with a 4" length of M8 threaded studding to push the rubber hanger on to.

Large washers spread the load inside the boot, the metal is very thin round there.
