problem with my new corsa x

I finally got my new corsa extreme in had them installed by a exhaust shop. I noticed when I pull in my driveway that I get a rubbing noise from the car. At first I thought it was my brakes. Is this normal? It happens every time I am going just a few miles per hour like when I roll to a stop, or when I pull in to my garage. I can feel it slightly from the floorboard.. again it only happens when I go really slow but my car has never had this problem before, I am thinking maybe something is rubbing but everything looks ok

If you are noticing it after the install, go back to the shop PRONTO, and have them fix/readjust the system. Quite possible a pipe is rubbing up against something, it's a tight fit.

Happened to me before, where the tailpipe was hitting against under the trunk well... HORRIBLE sound.

And the issue was caused by? Why do we always get left hanging?

just got back from shop

the guy who did the install didn't do such a good job. One side of the pipe was about a 1/8" off of the bottom of the trunk so when I stoped it would make a really bad noise. You would think a shop would catch that.. Anyway problem solved... Omaha nailed it.....

I was going to say I don't see how exactly that could be caused by the Corsa. I installed my own exhaust system, and if you know what you're doing there is no way you could screw it up lol.

It happened to me, in the corsa manual it says the exhaust will heat up and twist. (comes in separate pieces). Then tighten them up. I even had them tach welded afterwards , no more rubbing.
