    Default Exhaust rear box outer skin rusty

    Anyone found that the outer skin on the rear box gets very rusty? Up the nearside on mine it is missing (still not leaking though).

    Anyone got an idea on price for the P2.2 sri. I noticed money saving is in place here as the rear box is not sprung loaded like the B but compression fit to make it easy to get rust in your eyes when trying to prise the two parts apart.

    The outer one does waste away fast these days, had the same thing on my Omega, dont worry about it for now, the inner skin will hold the fumes, only replace it if it annoys you on the cosmetics side of things, I'm assuming its a Vx standard tail box you have, to replace it it will cost anything from £60 trade at Vx to £150 fully fitted retail.

    Hope that helps you out.

    Would the wax melt as they do get hot event the rear boxes. I do have some black underseal spray but I'm sure it would melt.

    I've based those prices on my Omega 2.2 petrol auto 52 plate, quote was £58 to supply trade from Vx dealer, not sure if it was + vat though.

    I know its a different box, mine was a long rectangle one with two branches entering it, single outlet.

    give vaux a call, and sit down when you get the reply, cos your looking, if irc, at £300ish for the back box alone for the irmy style one on the 2.2 Sri.

    I'm laying down and a good job. The sri only has abit of stainless tacked on the end of the exhaust, think I might cut that bit off and stick it on a normal 2.2 box.
