Rear silencer

747 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  xvvvz
The rear silencer on my 1997 C200 sounds like a rattle, comes and goes. Presumably the baffles are working loose, needs replacement. Agents charge for the name, probably for units that are also available direct from the manufacturers at half the price. Any comments from other forum members?

Your theory about the baffles coming loose is very likely at this age. If you do a search here and on you can read about peoples' experience with third party mufflers. Some of them sound too wanna-be/fart pipe for my taste but that is a personal preference thing. Many people put up youtube videos that help you get a feel for the sound of the new mufflers.
