    Parts of the exhaust (tail pipe etc) may be hymer commissioned and only available from hymer.

    Is it a Merc or Fiat? I have a brand new Merc tailpipe (std Merc ) for sale £20.00.
    Cheers, Dave(y)

    Thanks. Beginning to think it's going to be an expensive job. Seen on old threads that custom made may be necessary unless anyone else has any other ideas. Been told three months needed to make in stainless steel.

    My enquiry,which was for a non Funster friend turned out initially to come to a dead end, this resulted in a proposed trip to Portugal being cancelled. Then by chance along came this....Phil Littlewood of Stanfree,nr Chesterfield, who happens to be a relation of ours and who operates as a MOT tester, Mechanic and BMW rally car constructor, offered to make a complete system for the Hymer. Two days later he had built a complete custom made Stainless Steel system. So Phil would like anybody who needs the same service to contact him. At the moment we are away from home,so contact details are not at hand, I will post next Sunday,28th some more details. Feel free to contact me or post on, for more info.Please do not book a fitting for first week in July, that's reserved for me.

    Are you absolutely sure that it's not a standard Fiat Ducato exhaust, with a simple tail pipe extention added on?
    Our Hymer exhaust is, but being LHD, I will have to source our replacement from the EU.

    Cheers,

    Jock.

    Hi Jock, the replacement has been custom made in Stanfree, Nr Chesterfield, a totally satisfied customer, please read my post of today for all the details before you or others start looking in the EU for systems.

    Hi Jumar,

    I was referring to your original post on Dec 6th, ie, looking for a replacement. I'm glad that your friend got sorted in the end.

    I could easily get a standard exhaust off the shelf, but for a RHD only, which would mean the tail pipe would exit the bodywork right underneath the habitation door. :xsad: Techno100 and I have been able to source standard LHD replacements from the EU, which are very reasonably priced including delivery and a with 2-3 year warranty, pending supplier. No exhaust retailer in the UK would supply a LHD exhaust, when I enquired. :xsad:

    I may give your contact in Chesterfield a ring, before ordering from the EU, so look forward to reading further details. :xThumb:

    Cheers,

    Jock. (Ret'd CF&RS. :wink:)

    OK, returning to base (Totana,Spain) on Sunday, more details will be posted then. The exhaust systems are being custom made in Stainless.

    Hi
    I need a new exhaust on my B564, mines is RHD and the current exhaust exits just past the habitation door ( ie nearer the rear of the vehicle) The coach build is obviously a left hand as the habitation door is on the drivers side. I am assuming I could get an 'off the shelf' exhaust ?

    3 months for a stainless exhaust?

    That's ridiculous! Mine took 3 hours!

    Yes Margrea, you should be able to get a standard off the shelf system...............providing the converter (Hymer) didn't have the exhaust modified to fit.
    The year and model of Ducato will determine which system applies to your vehicle.

    Here is a link to some images of Ducato systems for you to compare with yours.

    A fiend of mine is going chop the standard one and weld the custom bits on. The old one has had bits welded on it.
