Diesels don't need a cat, only petrol engines from '92 require them. Diesels only get a smoke test, if he argues ask him to show you where in the manual it has to have a cat.

Hi,

If it is just the matrix inside the pipe rattling then remove the pipe and sympathetically smash the matrix up and tip it out. (you may even get some money for the matrix at the scrappy's).

instant de catted pipe, and it still looks like it has one fitted if you get a ""job's worth"" testing it for the MOT.

Cheers Trev.
