Frequently asked questions about exhaust repair & replacements in Dorset
Read our answers to questions about exhaust repair costs, symptoms and more.
What does an exhaust replacement in Dorset involve?
The mechanic will come to fix the exhaust pipe requested, and will assess the situation on the vehicle. They will then replace the exhaust pipe and advise on any further repairs needed. The mechanic will then run checks and adjust make adjustments if needed.
What are the symptoms of a faulty exhaust pipe?
A broken exhaust pipe may have a problem with the rubber mount holding it up, which would cause the pipe to sag, drag and hit speed bumps hard. There may also be a leakage problem, releasing fumes closer the the vehicle. A leakage issue can usually only be identified with specialist equipment.
How long does it take to fit an exhaust?
The time an exhaust repair will take will depend on the type of repair needed and on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
Is a bad exhaust an MOT failure?
Yes, a bad exhaust can lead to an MOT failure if causes exhaust emissions to exceed the legal limit or if there is a major leak in the system. Especially if the catalytic converter or diesel particulate filter are in a bad condition (or are if these are missing altogether). In many cases of a bad exhaust, however, you will probably only get an advisory note. For example if there's just a small exhaust leak or some corrosion. You will then pass the MOT, but you will need to address the problem at a later date before it becomes a more serious problem.
How much does it cost to replace the exhaust system in Dorset?
The cost for a full exhaust replacement can range from £250 to over £600. The cost will depend on your make and mode as well as the parts used. Exhausts on smaller city cars are usually on the cheaper end while bigger family and luxury vehicles are on the upper end of the scale. Fortunately, it is normally not required to replace the entire exhaust on a car. Usually only parts of the exhaust fail, which can then be replaced in sections. For example, if the tailpipe is broken then you can often just replace that part. Sometimes, however, several parts come in one section like a downpipe that's integrated with the catalytic converter.
How much does it cost to fix an exhaust leak in Dorset?
The cost to fix an exhaust leak can range from under £100 to over £500, depending on the issue and your type of vehicle. An exhaust leak can occur anywhere in the exhaust so to get an exact price the exact part with the issue needs to traced down.
