Rear silencer box back box fell off today! Looks like the weld between it and the connector pipe to the middle box has gone.
Is it repairable? Its a 2.0 16v

Probably not.. the metal is going to be too thin and rusted so a welder will just burn holes in it.

A quality replacement (e.g. Bosal) is about £100 so not tooooo severe. I've also seen them on fleabay for around £70.. but those may be "what you pay for" quality.

yeah just go for a new one. If you pay someone to weld it then it will prob cost you more in labour. Why not get a stainless one as they come with a life time guarantee!

While your at it, get replacement rubber mounts for middle section.
I found that mine had stretched and thats what caused the split, it also split the welding on the pipe input to the triangular middle box.
It meant i had to replace it with a cat-back stainless exhaust, I was nearly annoyed
