Default Exhaust manifold

Today while driving my 1.8 freelander suddenly sounded like a monster truck. I guessed my exhaust had fallen apart somewhere. The sound is coming from the very front of the car, so im guessing (i cant really see much from above or below) that the manifold has gone or blown a hole in itself, or maybe come loose?

I will have to take it to the garage soon but does anyone know if this is a common fault? is it a big job? (being that its not very accessible)

My local main dealer have qouted me 299 for a new manifold and cat (apparently they come as one bit)

or 199 for an aftermarket one. this is parts only obviously.

Default Re: Exhaust manifold

Took the car to local garage today, the collet between the cat and the exhaust had broken, they welded it up and charged me 20.

Thanks for all the helpful replies.
