    Default Backbox rattles... worth replacing?

    Hi chaps,

    Had an aftermarket backbox on the car for a few years and today I took it off to replace the centre section (bracket had broken off...

    Noticed that the rear silencer is rattling sounds like the innards have disintegrated.

    The exhaust isn't blowing at all, not much sign of external rust.

    Worth just replacing anyway? Usually I would regardless, but at the moment I'm a bit hard up...

    What are the consequences of not replacing likely to be? Asides from having to replace anyway later.

    It shouldnt be any more of a problem than being annoying really.

    Cheers mate,

    Never noticed a problem when driving, so I'll just stick it back on and keep my eyes open for a cheap replacement in the next few months.
