Hopefully you will all forgive me two posts in one evening!

On rebuilding my C3 (see "C3 1.4 16V HDI Wont start (as in not cranking, but it did..)" question) I checked around to see if there was anything obvious it would fail its MOT on..
Nearside indicator playing up. Yup, normal pattern headlight with bulb holders made by Sun Pat so not unexpected..fixable.
All other lights, wipers horn etc good..

Underneath OK..ish apart from the exhaust rear box.
Big corrosion over rear underside of exhaust rear box and the strap hanger has rotted through..

Can someone point me towards a cheap supplier of parts please?


(The long version of my previous post involved a Pub, a Pubco called Enterprise Inns, and near bankruptcy which I am still recovering from so not much spare cash at present..)

The rear hanger is here for about £15, a common problem... Easy fix, even removing the old one is easier than it should be.

There is a post about the rear hanger in this topic: diesel-c3-tips/diesels-rear-exhaust-han ... -t576.html


and there is a picture with a big white arrow, just in case you missed the rusty strap showing
