having a absolute mare.
its christmas month and ive already had to but a new battery as mine has given up, but when i parked it up last night i heard a mettalic rattling coming from underneath

been underneath it this morning and the exhaust pipe has come out of the middle box

obviously being an expensive month anyway im looking for a cheap solution, as far as i can see, nothing is wrong with the pipe or the box, not sure if the pipe has just come out or if there was a weld there that has given way

any suggestions on a fix would be great
cheers

i have no idea how to

its the pipe that goes into the middle box, its on the exhaust side, not the manifold side

i cant see anything wrong with it, it has just come out as far as i can see

think thats all it would need a weld?

i cant see anything else wrong with it at all

any idea how much a weld like that would cost?

If you have two stubby bits of pipe then get a slighty bigger or smaller pipe and two exhaust clamps, nick the pipes all round with a hacksaw and tighten the exhaust clamos round them having smeared them with a bit of exhaust paste,
