st 170 exhaust

4 posts in this topic

hi,

the exhaust on my 2002 st170 has just gone right at the front. i popped it in the garage thinking it would be a quick cheapish job. but the garage has phoned saying no stocks exhausts for this model except the main ford dealer. ive just phoned them and they gave me a price £370 + VAT just for the front section!!!!!!! has anyone else had this trouble? or does anyone know where i can get a cheap one from??

any help or advice would be welcome.

thanks

i reckon you get it down to an exhaust specialist rather than your local garage, see if you can get a better deal out of them, do you know if your ST has an extended warranty on it?

also have a wonder round your local scrap yards, see if theres any ST's knocking around

the garage that i put it into, reckon theyve all the local exhaust places, and that even the specialists cant get them unless they go through a ford dealer. i dont have a warrenty on it, and i dont think it would cover exhausts anyway.

im a little confused by the whole thing really.. i dont know the first about exhaust systems to be honest and i dont know exactly what i need. the guy who gave me the price at the ford dealer said it was that much before it had a cat in it.. but would i need a cat?? it only had a new one put on when i got the car just under a year ago. i was looking on the net last night and you can get a full stainless steel exhaust for under £300( albelt one with a tailpipe that big i'd need to check theres no tramps sleeping in it each morning), im guessing this doesnt include a cat though..

to add to all this.. the exhaust broke a couple of inches forward of the lambda sensor.. and where it dropped onto the road it scooped a big chunk of tarmac out the road surface and may have knackered the sensor
