Its the section of pipe at the back of the car about 18 inches from the back of the back-box that hits the strut that runs between the two back wheels - common fault on non-vauxhall zorst pipes.

You have to slacken off the U-Clamp then push the zorst upwards as far as it will go then tighten the clamp back up - i put two clamps on mine when it did this - it cured the problem though

Im pretty sure this is what it is.

Mines lowered and it does it to. Most the time it's the exhaust though, damn thing!

I just said how you can cure it

You just need to go and get yourself an extra U-Clamp and do what i said above - or am i invisable?

Yeah they are kerbside but when your moving and your suspension is travelling its different. See if you can move the zorst but pushing it - if its got a little bit of play in it it could be the cause.


just trying to go through what happened to mine you see - its sounds very similar thats all.
