    Default Back box

    Hi guys.
    had a rattle from the rear since I brought the car a month ago. Did suspect it's the back exhaust box so had a look today to find it very corroded and rattling inside. Just wondering what exhausts you guys all run when replaced on your diesels. Was thinking of changing to a twin system made by scorpion, but are very expensive. So what do u guys think I should do?
    Cheers andy

    Very dubious of having custom made as had issues before with old cars and never been fully happy with them. Also don't want it loud as it's our family car

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Had the same problem with mine, It was rattling from inside. Its the original back box with the car now on 113k. The outer shell fell off some time back, but now like yours rattling.

    I cured mine by getting some long ty- raps and rapping around the entire back box. As i pulled the ty-raps tighter it must slightly crush the box togeather, thus stopping it rattling.

    Well it worked on mine, so worth a try.

    Im just putting of the envitable of replacing it really. Funds a bit short at the moment.

    Give it a try!

    Have to agree with soulman here had them do a custom one on mine very impressed with it much better than powerflows
    I had the mid sport what sounds just right well worth the trip down there.

    Mij did my exhaust 18 months ago, went back recently cos it was blowing and repaired free of charge... Great service and I'm well pleased with their work.. I went for twin oval and mid sport sound, sounds nice and a bit of a growl when you press the loud pedal..

    Well that's me convinced then. Walsall is only 5 miles from me. Looks like a trip there for a price up. What type of systems did you all have? Singles, doubles and tail pipe designs. Any pics aswell guys would be fantastic.
    Many thanks andy
