Ok, so my exhaust just went - what do I do now?

The exhaust on my car has "gone" as people say. No idea what I'm meant to do next. I'm not really a car person.

Do I need to get it sorted out A.S.A.P, or is it ok/safe/legal to drive with my exhaust "gone" for a while - many boy racers do this judging by the sound they produce.

Also, how much would it cost on average to fix? Do I need to get the whole thing changed or do I just get the hole filled or whatever?

HELP!!!

If it's a Ferrari it may be quite expensive.

A few more details may help although I guess no one is really going to have a clue unless you know exactly what is needed

You need to get it sorted asap

Think you may win vaguest request of the day

depends on the extent on the damage and wheether youre bothered about performance

if small hole then you can just buy some gun gum which should sort it for a few months, long enough to get xmas out the way anyway

Well it's a Corsa, and basically it's just making a very loud noise.

I was just having a look at some notes from my last service, and it states that I will need a new exhaust box soon, so I'm guessing its time after tonight event lol Any idea how much this would cost - £60? ish maybeee

As others have said you need to get a fixed. Gum Gum and exhaust bandages are a possible fix but it depends on where the hole is. Depending on the car you may be able just get the damage section replaced, rather than a whole new exhaust but this is only worth doing if the rest of the exhaust is in okay condition.

If you don't get it fixed you run the risk of being stopped by the police and fined....

If it is an old banger of a car consider going to a local breakers yard and picking up a used one.

get it changed, not worth a temp repair, shouldn't cost more than £40-£50 if you avoid the likes of kwik fit.
if you have a mrTyre nearby maybe worth calling them. My back box was £36 fitted +2yr wrty.

Thanks for the advice everyone. Seems I need a new exhaust box.

Going to take it to a local tyre garage or ATS Euromaster tomorrow. Anone brought an exhaust box from them? Just curious as to what I would be expected to pay.

Well it would cost you 3 points and a fine for unroad worthy car if the police stop you (also you cannot not then drive it anymore till it is fixed legally), also it will have then to be tested that it has been fixed before being allowed back on the road.

As a HOTUKD deal the exhaust is cheaper to buy:whistling:.
