    Had the van serviced and checked today ready for our trip to Croatia next weekend. Fitter discovered back box on the exhaust is rotten and ready to fall apart. Ordered a Fiat one which arrived same day but nothing like the one on the van, reason being I suspect its a tag axle Alko chassis not the original Fiat chassis.

    So can anyone help its a 2002 Hymer B694 tag axle and I need a rear box if possible or full system as a last resort within a few days.

    If no luck he can make up a back box for the trip but if I can get the right part I'd prefer that option.

    Thanks(y)

    Any stainless steel exhaust dealer will make you a custom system, most likely work out cheaper too...

    Handling has got to be cheaper than collecting, mind you he still has not paid me back for the last round on our tour.

    Rory, don't be contacting Peter Hambilton, as it is a standard Fiat exhaust, but you will not get a LHD exhaust here in the UK. Bosal UK cannot even supply one, which is absolute bo##ocks.

    Please see my PM with a link to a quality LHD exhaust. (y)

    Cheers,

    Jock. :)

    Didn't realise you were local.
    Lifelong are a good company, I know a few hot hatch owners who are VERY happy with their work
