Hello,

I need to know the size of the flexi pipe (front exhaust)? It's for my Chevrolet Cruze (UK version) 1.8 LT Saloon (Sedan) Petrol.

My car was on the ramp at my local garage and the mechanic noticed that the flexi pipe is broken from where it meets the rest of the exhaust pipe (braided part). He showed me this too.

He said that I need to source a new front exhaust and he will fit it for me. I have been looking online and there are flexi pipes advertised which can be welded or clamped on to the current exhaust.

I phoned Arnold Clark and they quoted £280+ VAT for a new front exhaust directly from Chevrolet. This is very expensive and I will not be able to afford it.

So the only option left is to buy just the flexi pipe and have it welded on. Does anyone have any experience with this, is it a good idea?

This is the flexi pipe I've seen online...
