Hi Aussie Ed,
Just went out and had another look, it looks like a complete section of the exhaust, what I mean by that is, the pipe is connected at two points from the bottom of the 'cat' (down pipe from manifold), then at the central box, the 'Flex' is toward the front of the car (short pipe from 'cat', flexi (welded), longer pipe to box), hope that makes sense, I'm not exactly a mechanic, but do a bit of the small stuff on my carHi Aussie Ed,
thanks for your reply, I will have another look when it stops peeing down with rain,
Hi, Sorry for the late reply, and thanks for taking the time to answer my questions,
Hey just wanted to say this was really useful info. While I could find the OE part numbers in the online parts catalog, that means nothing to the internet. Between this forum and ebay, I was able to do cross references for part numbers. I'm in the market for the mid-pipe section that includes the flex pipe as well.I already done an flexi pipe exchange. Used the one for Astra J 1.8. - front exhaust pipe with flexi included BOSAL 800185 (for 50€).
Perfectly match the cat and middle fittings.
The only difference I noticed: Bosal used shorter flexi part and missing heat shield under transaxle joint, at cross point.
Can I leave that part of pipe unshielded, or will it damage the transaxle joint rubber by the time?
That thermal shield on original front pipe is welded together. So I can imagine it can spread heat the same way as pipe alone, if not more...
