Hi All

Will a backbox (A1244918801) for a w124 300TD estate fit a w124 e280 estate? Part numbers are different (A124 491 03 00 for the petrol) They look exactly the same! But will they fit?? And if it does fit, will a diesel silencer have any effect on the petrol motor? Surely not. Its just a silencer?

I've seen a Mercedes OE part and I just need to know if it fits etc...

Thanks

Tom

ps my front end rebuild was worth all the effort. The car drives beautifully. See my previous thread for some pictures.

From what I remember the pipe diameter is slightly smaller on the diesel box, so you would need to modify it to join the rest of the system. But internally there is no difference.

Thanks for that. My back box blew out today so I will buy the diesel box and fit it - I'll report back.

Made a horrible noise when it blew that I thought was something much more serious. But it kept on running so I slowly deduced it wasn't terminal. She lives on.

See picture for burst silencer. The view is looking backwards with the fuel tank in the top left.
