  • [Wanted] Mid silencer exhaust section for a 1.3 Maestro

    Hello,

    Does anyone know where I can obtain a mid section silence exhaust part for a 1.3 Maestro?
    The only ones I can appear to obtain are coming from Europe.
    Thank you.

    I've no experience of this seller but worth an ask. At least they give an original part no for compatibility.

      Hello, thank you for the reply.

      This indeed is what I'm looking for, sadly I checked with the retailer via web chat and they checked with their suppliers. They cannot get hold of it. I'm hoping someone on here might know of a source to get hold of one.

        As your car is a late model with a catalyst, the standard replacement section listed for most Maestros would not fit straight on to it.

        If you are committing to keeping the car long term, you would probably be better off getting a specialist to make one up for you in stainless steel.

          One of the parts companies I enquired with suggested having the part made. It's knowing where one can be made and fitted. Do you know of any places that make custom exhausts in stainless?

            I haven't used this company personally, but I know other classic owners who have done and they have been happy with the work. As it is franchise-based, bear in mind that quality and service levels could vary between different branches

              Your suggestion to get a custom made stainless exhausts is good one. I think that's the route I'm going to take.

              Thank you again
