How often should I replace my Volkswagen exhaust silencer?

The exhaust silencer (or exhaust back box) is a part of the exhaust fitted at the end of the exhaust the main exhaust pipe. Its function is to reduce the amount of noise the car makes through its exhaust pipe. The exhaust silencer, like the rest of the exhaust system, is fitted underneath the car and is therefore more prone to wear than most parts, it can easily rust or be damaged. If the part does not function properly anymore the exhaust silencer might need replacing. If you are unsure whether it needs replacing we would always suggest to get a professional mechanic to assess the problem first.

The cost for a full exhaust replacement can range from £250 to over £600. The cost will depend on your make and mode as well as the parts used. Exhausts on smaller city cars are usually on the cheaper end while bigger family and luxury vehicles are on the upper end of the scale. Fortunately, it is normally not required to replace the entire exhaust on a car. Usually only parts of the exhaust fail, which can then be replaced in sections. For example, if the tailpipe is broken then you can often just replace that part. Sometimes, however, several parts come in one section like a downpipe that's integrated with the catalytic converter.

The exhaust back box can start to corrode in a wet country like the UK. Furthermore the overall condition of the exhaust can also have an impact on how the back box deteriorates. Making sure therefore that the whole exhaust system is in a good condition can help extend the lifespan of the various individual parts.

It's important to get any issues with the exhaust fixed before you drive the car again therefore.
