where can i get this done, volvo sevice says they can't weld, would have to replace cat convertor
(1) Answer
The front pipe, or "Header Pipe" as Volvo refers to it is replaceable separately from the Catalytic Converter. It's common for these to leak and they need to be replaced if leaking.
Are they having a problem removing the header pipe from the cat? What exactly is going on here?
