    Does anyone have a parts diagram fror the above please?

    A small repair was carried out for the last MOT test, but I'd like to get it replaced for peace of mind and a diagram would be useful in assessing what is available

    Thanks

    It's in 2 parts, the back box and pipe, and the front section with the cat on it.

    I wouldn't go wasting your money, are you sure the repair wasn't one of the brackets? I have never had to replace a slk exhaust.

    Seems the repair was some welding to a bracket at the fron of the system, near the manifold - this make sense?

    If this can be sorted without buying a new system then obviously that's good. Are the brackets replaced separately?

    There is a support bracket from the exhaust to the gearbox that always fractures, the repair is to re weld the original bracket, very common.

    Thanks, think I'll wait and get it repaired rather than buy a system then
