I've decided (coz I'm skint) to repair my exhaust rather than replace. I can get a new downpipe from ebay for £48 and am gonna faff about with some repair hangers.
First hurdle is downpipe removal. It looks a right pain in the butt! Which is the easiest? Take out the cat with it still attached? or can you get on the bolts ok from underneath? Is it as much of a nightmare as it looks?
