First of all Elddis sent me the wrong part number, which led to frustration when I ordered it through my local agent (you can't order parts direct from Elddis). Then, given repeated explanations, Elddis sent me a new part number, which I ordered. When it came it was not the right part. It was a slightly different shape from mine. I contacted Elddis to ask what had gone wrong. "Nothing", they said. "We don't make the part you want any more as our supplier doesn't have a drawing for it. You can still fit it". So they just sent me the wrong part anyway, without any explanantion. If I fit it, it will have to be a botched job and the end of the exhaust will be right underneath the vehicle instead of throwing the exhaust out to the side. I am currently in deadlock with Elddis over this and I am not happy. Obviously there is a drawing for the wrong part that they have sent me, and anybody with a pencil, a tape measure and a couple of spare minutes could easily modify the drawing to show the part I do want. Does anybody know what the problem is with Elddis? Are they overworked and underpaid or what?
Thank you all for your help and suggestions. Called Elddis this morning - most unhelpful! They referred me to our dealers! When I said dealer told me that it was a Peugeot item not Elddis, I was referred to another dealer! Have said b****er being tossed around the system and are going to an exhaust specialist and get the bit fabricated.
Edited for spelling
Our last van was a 140, and same happened. Mine was a clean break just after where the end piece was rivetted on. My solution was to measure the diameter and purchase a stainless steel end piece which was a snug fit over the existing pipe. I drilled thru both sections ( hard job ) and secured with 2 self tapping screws. The new ss piece was purchased from a car accessories shop.
Hope this is of some help

Peugeot Boxer on Elddis 140 Motorhome - Exhaust
Have any of other Peugeot Boxer Elddis motorhome owners lost the tailpipe of their exhaust. If so, did you have a problem getting a replacement? From our enquiries it looks like an add-on, but we can't get one off the shelf. Dealers say its Peugeot, but exhaust dealers don't have a note of it on their books. At the moment, we have in mind to go to an exhaust fabricator to get the part made up. Can anyone help with suggestions, please, that might be a cheaper route to go.
