Catalytic converter

Car prices for catalytic converter

A catalytic converter is designed to reduce pollutants from your car exhaust. They are typically trying to reduce the amount of carbon monoxide, VOC's (volatile organic compounds) and NOX (nitrogen oxides). The converter itself may be made of platinum and is designed to have as large as possible surface area to maximise possible reaction sites. A catalyst helps the breakdown of the toxic emissions but does not take part in the reaction itself. Catalytic converters have been criticised because although they reduce emissions of toxic gases they decrease fuel efficiency and cause the car to emit more 'greenhouse' gases.

volkswagen quoted me 1226 for the replacement of my front and rear catalytic converter and stated further investigation may be required as my front and rear O2 sensors may also need replacing. I have a 2006 Golf 1.6 petrol vehicle. The replacement of both O2 sensors would have been another 440 on top of 1226! I bought the rear cat and front cat from The rear cat was 155 and front cat 215. The total price was reduced by 10 as I was buying both cats. Both cats came with a limited lifetime warranty. I also bought the O2 sensors at 73 each inc VAT from GSF. The total for all parts came to 505 including vat and free delivery. Labour was only 100 no vat to fit both cats and both sensors by my friendly mechanic with free computer diagnostics, totaling 605 all in, which I think is much cheaper than vw and kwik fit.
