Exhaust was making a rattle noise the other day when the engine was running. Also been finding I'm blowing blooms of white smoke out the back on start up. Got my dad to have a look as I just stated up and he said black smoke came from the back and from under the cab. Got under and had a look, and this is what I saw

Am I right in thinking that box is the Cat? It's located directly below the drivers seat sort of area.

It has split all the way through and I can imagine it repairable.

So is this a miss fortune which really means, mrs pothole I need to buy a ppttuning decat pipe A:

Yep, that's the location for a cat to live in.
Fortunately for diesels there is no requirement to keep a cat and as suggested above the vehicle can be de-catted.

That is remove old and replace with section of pipe known as "decat pipe" various ones around on offer. With no cat or silencer in this location it wont be any noisier, said to go better.

As pptuning is on here does he offer any forum discount? Although it's broken I've not noticed its any louder

Looking back I think it must have happens when I was reversing back the other week and the exhaust hit a high kerb
