Re: Panda 1.1 Active, Rear Exhaust back box

Just going through the same thing for the GF car


Had to cut the old one off. Someone had welded the old one to the CAT and welded the back box onto the centre pipe.

Got the parts from 3 different local motor factors

Back box 19.95 + VAT from CES
Centre pipe 26 inc from General Traffic
Exhaust manifold gasket 5.99 inc from Euro Car Parts.

All fitted.

One of the bends was a bit out on the back box. No real problem. Put a piece of wood between the rear axial and the exhaust then jacked the area that needed bending.

Fits perfectly now.


Used a tube of silicon from Poudstretcher as the gasket 99p

This is in the true spirit of Panda ownership .

Spend what you need to keep the car in good order, but watch every penny .

I'm aiming to keep the total cost of ownership below 20p/mile. Petrol is about half of that.

Re: Panda 1.1 Active, Rear Exhaust back box

Should have put a warning in my previous post.


Silicon is fine down stream of the lambda seniors but will harm them if used upstream.


In fact by the way this has worked I would say better as it doesn't crack and flake off.
Thanks jrkitching thanked for this post
