    Exhaust backbox

    2002 1.6 16v sxi

    for a new stainless steel baxkbox is it Flange or sleeve fitting? i see two bolts so im thinking flange

    Can i fit it myself, is the back box likley to be welded to the rest of the exhaust

    where can i get a decent twin backbox for around £150

    cheers

    if you see two bolts the its most prob flange.
    and no its wont be welded to the rest of the exhaust.
    yes you can fit a new one yourself but the old bolts might be alittle tight. so you might wanna get some new one's just incase they decide to snap.

    thinking of demon tweaks, but dont like the idea of not being able to see it. they can differ sooo much

    Yeah agree will be flange fitment it the bolts are paralle with thhe exhaust, if they are at 90 degrees then they are likly to be using a U-shaped clamp and will be sleeve fitting.

    I have just changed my centre section for a Remus Race pipe and with the bolts being originals they had to be cut off so budget in new bolts, clmaps and flange gasket.
