Urgent need for 17 TZD estate front exhaust pipe

Post by hvanman »

Hi, my 17 TZD 1992 estate failed the MOT on a holed front exhaust pipe. A good local company has tried several of their suppliers, but they have all come back as saying it is obsolete and they can't get one... This is my main car and the current MOT expires on Friday. Does anyone have a suitable pipe, or know where I can get one from quickly? I haven't seen the damage myself yet, so don't know exactly where it is. I live in Bedfordshire and work in Southampton during teh week making tracking the part a bit harder....Many thanks, Simon.

There seem to be plenty fo sale on Ebay, although I don't know how quickly they could get one for you.

It'd be worth finding out where exactly it's holed, as it may be repairable.

I've had a quick look and only found one so far for the 1.7 Turbo and that's in Wolverhampton so too far to collect and at the mercy of the couriers... still at least I know of one supplier and there is maybe another company in London that says it can get all parts, but it's too late to call unfortunately. Ideally I need to find one in Southampton area that I can collect and get fitted while I am down here, but I don't think I'm going to be that lucky.... I do know a welder, but he's pretty busy and if I want to avoid having to pay the full £50 MOT re-test fee, I need to get it fixed by mid-morning on Saturday...

what day/date did your car fail the MOT,

as you are aware you get 10 working days for a free re/test , and that is no including weekends and bank holidays,

lookk on Bosals web site ( link below ) to get a part No., then aim that at the likes of GSF

Hi Malcolm, thanks for that, I had not thought about the bank holiday and weekends, so that helps a lot. It was on Saturday that it failed, although the current MOT expires tomorrow.... Having got under the car in the rain, I think it's the 2nd, "dogs leg" pipe that's gone, where it turns to go into the first silencer rather than the actual front pipe, which looks fine. I will check out that web site link thanks. Simon

Hi Simon, if its the 'Hockey stick section' (786-535) which do tend to rust thro' more frequently :(

1769cc TD Estate Exhaust system :-

Heres one on E-bay (Bosal equivalent 786-535) from Germany £20.82 delivered '48 hours Courier' but then states a date/estimate of 6th/7th June (Presumably if you place the order today) !

Click on photo for link :wink:

Good luck !

Thanks Richard, yes that's the part and I'm "told" by my local company back in Bedfordshire they can get one for sat morning and fit it for just over £40, so fingers crossed their supplier doesn't let them down like the last bunch....
