    Astra G back box

    had my MOT done on my 2001 astra 1.6 16v SXI Z16XE and have been advised i need a new back box as my outer shell has nearly completely rusted

    question is do I go for a standard one from Vauxhall or go for another?

    i had an advisory last MOT,not this one funnily enough,about the same thing. Unless it leaks and starts blowing mate,dont worry about. To quote an old saying "THEY ALL DO THAT" so unless they are failing it,dont waste your money,unless you want another one.

    If you want to stay around that price, then go standard (dunno the cost) or try and snatch a great deal in the classifieds here or eBay.

    Failing that, just eBay Cybox
