Giving you a price on a full-exhaust system (or part thereof) is like
diagnosing a baby that's crying constantly and seems out of sorts to one
that has potentially life-threatening Meningitis. Even doctors get the
diagnosis wrong sometimes.
Similarly, a back-box for a Ford Fiesta 1.25 might be £15 but for a 1.4 that
exterior wise looks like the same animal may be £150! This is all
hypothetical and not actual quotes because it's absolutely impossible for
anyone to give you even a rough price guide because there are so many
different variants of engines used in so many different cars that nobody is
ever going to be able to give you a price guide. Furthermore, you haven't
even identified whether you need a 'part' of the exhaust system or a
I suggest you firstly identify what needs replacing (full or part system)
and then phone around the various companies listed in your phone book under
"Exhausts". If you really don't have too much of a clue pop into National
Tyres / Halfrauds / Kwik-Con or whoever and say it sounds noisy and take a
look for yourself when the vehicle's up in the air. Decline their initial
offer if it worries you and phone around, at least you'll know whether you
need a whole exhaust replacement or part.
Back to your original question. You provide me with the six numbers I need
to win the lottery next Saturday and I'll give you your quote! :)
Now that it's light I've had a look.
The back box has a hole all the way along the horizontal joint and it's
a 1.1 engine. Kwik Fit quoted £65.50 for it and nowhere else is
answering the phones at the moment.
