Try putting your VIN number in at the site in the link below and you will be able to look up the parts that should be fitted to your van.

My old berlingo, y  reg had one but when the exhaust gave up I got a middle pipe which had a shape in it that looked like it had a cat, for MOT it required one but as long as it looked like it had one it passed. Dodgy .

Don't know if they are still available , IIRC it came from Germany.

They do need one for the MOT.

Found this but it may be out of date (As at Feb. 2015)

The fitting of catalytic converter was made standard in UK in 1993, to comply with harsher emission regulations.
Vehicles registered on or after 1 August 1992 are required to have catalytic converters fitted. This included vehicles held in storage and out of production for several years, in some cases five years or more.
It was in 2009 when it became a legal requirement for all CATS made, sold and installed to have R103 Type Approval and affects all cars and light commercial vehicles up to 3500kg registered on or after 1st January 2001.

Your exhaust may look like it has no cat but it may still have one in what looks like a normal silence box. Anyway if its not the case on yours at the moment the cat being in the system should not affect fitment.

Which engine do you have?
On the 1.4i of that vintage, the exhaust goes down from the manifold, under the gearbox, over the steering rack, then into the cat.
And there should be an Oxygen sensor slightly below midway on the downpipe.

Hi, thanks for the replies, it's a 1.9 diesel , we have had the van for 7yrs and only ever replaced the middle and rear section of the exhaust, it's only covered 100,000 miles which for its age is low and had light use with only 3 owners us being the third.
