    I've just had to replace the 10 month old exhaust centre section that I bought from Eternal :)hysterically_laughi) Exhausts on E bay which had split around the silencer end flange . Fortunatley I had a genuine LR spare but the thing that's really annoying me is the rasp that is emitted on load and overrun .
    It's been there for some time now and I had put it down to a collapsed cat but that was two cats ,two front downpipes and two rear silencers ago!
    Is anyone else suffering from this problem on a 1.8 petrol ?

    Not got a rasp on mine, was going to suggest the cat but you have eliminated that, might just be a fault inside - I remember on a car I had years ago the previous owner had fitted a bosal exhaust and where the 2 downpipes were 'squeezed' into one, it caused a horrible rasp.

    My initial thought was the cat too and I replaced it but much to my disappointment it never cured it. I got so annoyed with it that I purchased a new centre and rear section of exhaust thinking that one of the baffles was causing it but again no .....:mad:
    Lastly the flexi joint on the front down pipe started to blow so the down pipe was recently changed and again made no difference .
    I had to replace the " new " centre section at the weekend after the silencer end flange split and the rasp is still there .
    It's got me " baffled"............:rolleyes:
