159 sportwagon 2011 rear box farting
I have a 159 2.0 JTDM sportwagon 2011 (a few months out of warranty) and the rear box rattles under load and most noticeable when turned off. I say rattle, it sounds like a metallic muffled fart.....
The outer casing of the box has rotten away with pieces the size of your hand coming off from the top and the bottom, which as you can imagine, rattled as well, alas its removal didn't cure the issue.
Looking down the pipe I can see a very shiny metal wall a few inches inside, suggesting its not rotten.
Repairable or new box?
Any ideas and suggestions would be most appreciated.
