exhaust pipe advice

Hello!
Our latest 'fix' we need to carry out is to the rear part of our exhaust on the multipla eleganza (petrol 1.6). The front box looks to be shiny and new but the back bit is knackered and making a bit of noise.
We have a whole new exhaust in the attic from our ugly bug diesel and wonder if we can transfer the bit we need onto the petrol multipla?
This might be a resounding 'no' in which case, are we best off taking it to an exhaust place and getting them to put a new bit on or can we bodge it a bit?
Any advice warmly welcomed!

Re: exhaust pipe advice

Well, we fixed it, but at a price. Having 'got lucky' with the gearbox problem earlier, we didn't get so lucky with the exhaust! In short, the diesel and petrol exhausts are different, so we couldn't use what we had, and the two bits we needed along with the fitting came to 250. On the plus side, it sounds a hell of a lot better now.

Check out my own 'experience' of 'fast fit' ripoffs....They basically just take the 'wee-wee'
Wanted 100+ to fit a 25 exhaust part..

30 mins work at an average of 100 per HOUR!!!
NEVER take a garages prices as 'honest' because there is no such thing as an 'honest' garage!!!
