The flange that holds the middle and rear box together broke about 10 months ago (14,000 miles) and I was driving without the rear box attached. So I thought as it doesn't appear to to anything I would replace it with a straight through pipe.

I simply cut off what remained of the broken flange on the middle section and slid the new pipe over the old, fixing in place with a 63mm exhaust clamp.

When I've got a bit more time I'm going to remake the exhaust into twin pipes, one on each side of the car. I only made this a single this time to get through this weeks MOT.(hopefully!)

Hi

I bought one just like yours off Bertye and fitted it a couple of months ago. Since fitting it, the Xy runs a lot smoother, accelerates better and definitely has increased MPG by 3MPG. I am now getting an average of 35MPG around the doors. I have measured this over the last 3 full tanks.

Cheers
Mike

Certainly easier on the eye than the big unsightly back box. Nice job. :thumbs:

If you do a bit of soft roading or get on farm tracks now and again these tail pipe sections are great from Bertye.That back box was a god damn awful design for the Xtrail as don't know how many times I have bumped mine in the year.These replacement pipes won't make the Xtrail sound any different either noise wise and will give you better access under the rear end for any cleaning or rust treatment.

Hi, Would the removal of the silencer increase the noise of the petrol variant?
