New exhaust for CDTi ZTT
I replaced the exhaust today on my oil burner ZTT. I bought the Klarius one from Euro Car Parts. The price £148 made the decision a no brainer, plus a few extra bits from Rimmers, the metal sealing washer and joining clamp plus additional rubber hangars fron ECP, the total cost was about £165.
Kwik fit wanted over £500 to supply and fit, Halfords would beat their price by £50. As I live over 60miles from either of those outlets decided to fit myself then had a confrontation with a bench saw at work, slicing the bottom off the end of my thumb. That was 5 weeks ago. Thumb still very sore. Got the old exhaust off. It was more holy than the Pope.
Getting the rubber hangars on with one thumb was difficult but its now on and running very quiet. Only downer is the back box hangs lower than the old one, and knocks on the back strap running across the tunnel. I have an old rubber wedged between the pipe and the bracket for now, but does anyone have a better suggestion. Old exhaust was a proper Rover double skinned unit but not one piece. Also no need to take all the undertray off just the four rear turn clips.
