    Does anyone know the cost of replacing R/H rusted exhaust centre bracket.
    My local dealer says around £400.

    For just the bracket?

    I did come across an instance like this a few months ago where the bracket came only with the exhaust.

    Phone eurocarparts/ GSF, they may have a pattern alternative.

    Is it weld able? I had the rear exhaust box bracket welded back onto the box on my W210. The bracket had rusted off the back box but the steel on the box was easily thick enough to mig weld it back on. There's a thread with pictures on here about it.

    We just clean them up and re weld. If its that bad just make a new bracket and weld it on. £30 should cover it at a garage
