Question ZS 1.6 Rear Silencer Help Please

Hi guys, I bought a 2003 1.6 110+ Hatch a few weeks ago which I love dearly even though people are dead against them, and there is a strange noise at times after going 70+ from the back box. I have rung a number of places for a back box but have been told that they have no product code so cannot order them. I wonder if anyone can tell me if the back box from a Rover 45 1.6 Hatchback (RR315G) will fit straight on. Many thanks in anticipation of a speedy response.

PS my car seems to be noisier than any other car that I have owned, is this normal I have Marangoni Verso tyres on?

Welcome to the forum.

I can't tell you if they are definitely interchangeable but would think that they are as long as the engine size and body shape are the same.
I've just fitted a new cat section to my 45 2.0L KV6 saloon which is the same as the MG ZS 2.5L KV6.
You might care to look at this link :-

On the noise question, I am guessing you mean wind/road noise as opposed to engine noise. I have found that it's something you get used to. I think the 45/ZS is not known to be one of the quietest drives but is bearable. When you think that the body shape is now approaching 20 years old (more or less, as its virtually a 400) from it's conception it's pretty good.

Hope this helps.
