Just been looking at a less than 6 month old Diesel
Captur, three things amazed me, one the exhaust had
snapped off cleanly just about level with the B pillar
it was dangling down about 2 inches off the road,
Two the car was perfectly quiet I would never have
known but for looking, "turbos make great silencers"
and three the owner showed no
interest in getting it fixed even after being told that
Renault would likely fix it for free under guarantee.

Plot thickens
Seems the driver is a ex test pilot for TVR so they would
already have a high tolerance for important bits dropping off.

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.

More money than sense or its a company car

It is easier to take it apart than to put it back together
