Hi,

The rusting through of the front welded joint on the rear box has been around for a few years now. The box on my 1998 2.1 Xantia had to be replaced at 30000miles. The rear box on my previous BX TZD lasted for 8 years and almost 100K. Previous 205's have lasted likewise. Since having the 2.1 box replaced, I now paint the joints from time to time with Hammerite.
