Hi all,

I wonder if anyone can help. I've got a very poorly cat on my 52 plate ST170. I rang my local Ford dealer today and they quoted me 908 for the full cat or 135 for the flexi pipe! I have already had a quote for a full cat from an independent garage at 342 fitted. I've looked on google for the part I need and I think I've found it just need anyone to clarify it for me as the price is drastically different from the price Ford quoted.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Lauren

Doesn't the CAT have a 60k mile guarantee or ten years? Says something in the manual.

Probably does, mine's done 105,000! Oops! I have pretty much rebuilt this car since buying it nearly 2 years ago, fingers crossed this will be the last repair for a while!

Thanks
