Full Version: Exhaust loud noise for focus 1.8

Hi

I have a 1.8 petrol 2000 reg ford focus estate. When I drive along my exhaust seems really loud and when I get to approximately 3000 revs it seem worryingly loud. At lover revs it seems normally. I thought this might be because of a hole in the exhaust. So got that fix as there was a hole but this made no difference. Any ideas
Was I conned with the exhaust. Can I get them to give me my money back if this was not the problem as it was a Kwik Fit?

Thanks
Tom

to be honest its hard to say as i cant hear the noise and different people have different perceptions and ways of describing a noise to be honest if its a concern ide have it checked out the 1.8 is only usually throaty when revved hard other than that its fairly quiet noises can be coming from one place say a wheel but to you and the way the noise travels you think its an engine noise

I have taken it back and they say its a manufacturers fault with the back box and will fix it for free. I will get it fixed but this sounds like a lie to me anyone heard about this before?

isnt unheard of youll soon find out when they refit the exhaust

I would blame the CR*PFIT exhaust I once took a caviler in with a large hole in 1 box and a crack in the other. full new exhaust system was fitted and the car was noisier than when I took it in after 3 weeks complaining I found out that they had fitted a cheap back box which was not tuned to the rest of the system which produced harmonics very loud harmonics.
