Cat Confusion
#1
Hi,
I have a 2005 berlingo 1.4i and recently the catalytic converter rusted out. I bought a new one from an internet dealer, but when I received it and checked with the broken one, it seems larger, yet looks basically the same shape and length. I gave the dealer all the correct spec for my car, year, engine no., etc., so confused at this.

The cat is the type that bolts straight on to the manifold (four bolts, sqaure top / metal washer) and looks like a tube that is thicker than the pipe. The broken one's fittings at the top end are identical to the new ones, but this looks thicker at the cat section. 

I wondered if the old broken one was incorrect for this year model car, as I bought it second hand last year and don't know if it had been changed in the past, or if the new one I have been sent is for another model? Also, the broken one runs under the protective metal shield cover that goes over the front axel (bolted on), and wondered if this is correct routing?

Before I attempt to replace it, I didn't want to open the plastic bag packaging of the new one in case I need to send it back.

Any help with this would be really appreciated as I want to try get this job done this week.

Thanks.

Impossible to answer really photos may help?

If it fits i would not be too concerned as aftermarket parts such as exhausts and cats can look different to original parts.

if the connecting pipe fits and is not 1/3rd longer then fit it it will be just different manufacturers internals and the way they manufacture the cat.

If you did a little research you would have found the 1.4 and 1.6 are few centimeters height different and don't fit unless you fabricate a 1" spacer. I know because I made few DeCats and sold them through the forum so I wrote a few helpful after lines when nobody had answers.

No worries in any case. The cat went on perfect today, but thanks for your advice in any case Smile
