Exhaust brackets???
« on: December 19, 2005, 10:36:58 PM »
Okay I'm here to pick your brains...

Just fitted the new exhaust on Baxter.  However, the exhaust doesn't appear to have any brackets, do you think it should?  So it is held on purely by the pipes which lead to the engine.  As the engine ticks over the exhaust is vibrating independently, and I guess it will eventually snap off.

Am I missing something here?

Cheers guys!

Chris you are a star!

Thank you!

Haven't got a clue what I'm looking at but I'm sure the other half will do.

Wendy

PS. Which way up does the picture go?

The old exhaust's bracket is welded on.

The exhaust I've bought is a genuine Fiat exhaust from a main dealer but has no bracket? :sad:

dear o dear, welded on, blimey!!

right, next step is to leave a post on here see if any one has any spare exhaust brackets.

otherwise get in touch with fiat and see if they have any. i dont think they have ever come with brackets im afraid!!

what a bummer!

why not take the bracket off the old one by means of force, and weld it onto the new exhaust

your right it is an option!
but for the sake of a few £'s u can do it properly and it will last longer!

wendy another thing i would do is get another coat of high tempreture paint in it! they rust badly, and as uve probable just found out they r expensive!

Been on to the main dealer today, they do an aftersales bracket which does the job but, I think, differently to the one shown in your pictures.

They should have it in tomorrow morning.

Apart from that, we got the back lights working and new windscreen wipers.  Maybe able to get an MOT before the end of the week, I hope!

Thanks for all your help!
