Has anyone had the misfortune to have to had the Cat replaced on their X-Trail.

Mine is a 2.0 Sport, 51 Reg with just under 50,000 miles with the original Cat.

Currently experiencing loss of power, fumes/smell from the exhaust, a sence of overheating of the exhaust and a burning smell from the engine bay.

Needless to say I am not using it at the moment.

I realise that it is going to be expensive, it comes with the territory, but I would just be interested in any advice or suggestions if you have had yours replaced.

Regards,

Tim.

Hi i need to replace mine soon. i've had it checked out and the cat still works but the lamba sensor says to much co2 only slightly out though. a nissan one will cost you £700 a none factory one will cost £400 but i have seen ones for £300 on the web and these meet ths latest laws. you have factor in at least another £80 for fitting. so its ****** exspensive.

if yours is crumbling inside do not even start it as i was told that the engine can suck the bits back into the cylinders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for the replies.

May consider DIY (mechanic in former life) but these days prefer to leave it to a man who can.

Going to contact local exhaust specialist tomorrow, so I'll keep you posted.

If you decide to do d.i.y. I do have details on removing the sensor from the cat, so if you need them let me know.

UPDATE

Got quoted £285 + fitting + VAT for the Cat at local exhaust specialist.

Would not quote for fitting due to the fact they had never done one before (no supprise there) and they required to see the vehicle before doing so, due to fact they did a similar job on a Ford for which they underquoted on the labour.

Now I know what I am up against I am getting the vehicle checked to be 100% sure its the Cat that has failed.
