How long does it take to fit an exhaust on my Volkswagen?
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.
How often should I replace my Volkswagen exhaust pipe?
Your exhaust pipe is not a part you would commonly replace but it is susceptible to damage as it fitted underneath the car and is exposed to the elements. If there is any sign of damage then it is important to get it fixed, as it will normally have an effect on the performance of your vehicle.
How often should I replace my Volkswagen exhaust silencer?
The exhaust silencer (or exhaust back box) is a part of the exhaust fitted at the end of the exhaust the main exhaust pipe. Its function is to reduce the amount of noise the car makes through its exhaust pipe. The exhaust silencer, like the rest of the exhaust system, is fitted underneath the car and is therefore more prone to wear than most parts, it can easily rust or be damaged. If the part does not function properly anymore the exhaust silencer might need replacing. If you are unsure whether it needs replacing we would always suggest to get a professional mechanic to assess the problem first.
How much does it cost to replace the exhaust system on Volkswagen?
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 long should an exhaust back box last on my Volkswagen?
An exhaust back box can easily last over 50,000 miles, it will normally depend on a number of factors how long exactly it will last. As the exhaust, being mounted underneath the car, is always exposed to the elements the climate you drive in as well as the type of roads that you drive on can impact how quickly the deteriorates. The exhaust back box can start to corrode in a wet country like the UK. Furthermore the overall condition of the exhaust can also have an impact on how the back box deteriorates. Making sure therefore that the whole exhaust system is in a good condition can help extend the lifespan of the various individual parts.
It's important to get any issues with the exhaust fixed before you drive the car again therefore.
What causes blown Volkswagen exhausts?
A blown or blowing exhaust is normally caused by small cracks in parts of the exhaust system. As the exhaust is subjected to extreme heat (and heat changes) over time small cracks and holes can appear. This in turn leads to hissing and blowing noises as well as vibrations from the exhaust. Eventually, this can contribute to further exhaust problems and cause the exhaust to fail.
How much does it cost to fix an exhaust leak on Volkswagen?
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.
How long does a car exhaust last on my Volkswagen?
The average lifespan of a car exhaust is around 5 years. However, this will vary depending on how often you use your car, the type of car you have, and how well you maintain your car. In some cases, it can last for the entire lifetime of a car.
Does a bad exhaust affect performance and fuel consumption on my Volkswagen?
If there is a leak in the exhaust system, it is quite likely to affect mileage. It can also cause further damage to the vehicle, so the best thing to do in case you suspect an exhaust leak is to get it checked by a professional mechanic as soon as possible.
