Just had a quick pre MOT check of my Jimny and noticed that the second CAT downpipe weld has failed, resulting in a sliding joint !
So it looks like I nedd to replace this middle section including the CAT. Seen them on ebay etc, will phone around tomorrow, but anyone got any experience of the quality of replacement parts for this section?
Any avoids or recommendations?

The good news is the rest looks perfect and I will still have to go (booked for the 4th) and hope they dont spot it.

The cheaper the parts the more time you may need to spend 'tailoring' them to fit!
Although I bought a rear exhaust section for my last Jimny off ebay, searched 'Jimny rear exhaust', selected 'Price, lowest P&P' and bought the cheapest.
I figured I have all the hardware available to 'make' it fit. Imagine my surprise when it turned up, supplied with new bolts, nuts, gaskets and rubbers. Fitted perfectly!

Best to weld it up if you can. I fitted a cheap (£80?) cat and it wouldn't go through the emissions test, then the cat broke up shortly after so I knocked the ceramic out of it and ran it like that until the next MOT when I repaired and refitted the original cat. Genuine parts are expensive. I think I've welded both side of mine back on now but it's got another 20,000 miles life out of it and counting, so well worth doing.

I’ve fitted a centre cat section and rear box to mine both from eBay.
They fitted perfectly fine and it passed the emissions test no problem.

The only problem I had was the rear exhaust box was slightly larger than the original so it knocked on the towbar bracket occasionally
I used a piece of old rubber fuel pipe and a cable tie to act as a buffer and it’s been fine since.

Thanks so far,, the exhaust is surprisingly quite considering the front down pipe is just resting in the front of the cat. Looks like my local Euro Cart parts can supply one sub £100, would go for this as its easier to plonk it on the desk if it gives any problems.
Its held on with what looks like spring loaded bolts (not sure what they are called).

What are the chances of these being reusable, am I better assuming I will need new?

Still going for MOT on Friday without fixing this as its a free one, they may not see it and its a grey area fail as its not falling off and not loud.
Still need to fix it though, but not going to rush..

^^^^^ Thanks, done it, worth a try.

What about those spring mount things, possible to use again or get new?
Are they threaded?

Euro dont appear to sell these.

Thanks

Mike

The mounting springs and sealing rings are available separately. Make sure you get the correct ring as some kits have a ring that is too small.

I fitted a Eurocarparts one on mine about June time, it passed MOT last week with no emissions issues. Discount code on ecp at the min is SALE90, should give about 30% off exhaust parts.
