Exhaust tail pipe fell off. Can't find new one.

Any body know where i can get a new tail pipe for my exhaust.

To fit standard 65mm dia. pipe but must be 350mm lomg.

Would be a bonus if it looked the part too. Can only find 230mm long max.

It would help if you posted details of your van.

My tail pipe broke (fastened together with a baked bean can got us 2000miles round the Hebrides) and I was offered 4 different replacements, none of which matched mine [2001 Sprinter 2.7l diesel]. Using dealers websites, some had it down as 2.1l, 2.2l but few as 2.7l. Some suggested rear exit, some nearside (UK) but none had it as offside (UK) which it is.

Eventually I got one made out of stainless steel: it'll outlast the van! £300 fitted.

Half the exhaust broke off on an early RV while we were on the Med. The tapered leg of the dining table slid inside both parts with such a good fit it had to be cut off on our return to UK to fit a new pipe.

Yep i did not enplane myself properly .

The exhaust on my 2010 2.3 ducato is fine, solid and 65mm in diameter at end.

It is only the little add on end pipe to extend it out the side of van so fumes clear the underneath. Also look nice.

Here is an example but not long enough. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal...oAAOxyLVZRYpCq

Can find loads of them shorter but need 350mm in length

Find a stainless steel exhaust pipe factor near you.
It’s not as a expensive as you might think. I found one when touring in the West Country and the complete tailpipe, which included a bend and final shaping was in the £40-50 price. And they last for ever!

I'm not signing anything.

The two impulses in travel are to get away from home, and the other is to pursue something - a landscape, people, an exotic place. Certainly finding a place that you like or discovering something unusual is a very sustaining thing in travel.

Hi
have the same issue on a 2010 Eldiss Auto Quest. The small section decided to go its own way in the 50mph limit on the M20, and I was unable to stop. Ill let you know if I find something.

Welcome to the forum and we hope that you will stay with us, but would suggest not to go back looking on the M20, it's not worth it ! 😁

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
