Anyone else had this issue? I've already had it repaired once but suspect if I do it again the repair won't last long. The rest of the backbox is in reasonable nick.

If they repair it again could you ask them to weld an additional plate either alongside or on the underside to reduce the load on the weaker repair?

Good call. Didn't think of that! Plumped for a new backbox in a moment of purchasing anger but will try and get this repaired as  backup.

Thanks @Bibs!
