down pipe

I'm trying to learn so I decided to install my new exhaust myself. I'm having a problem in understanding how to remove the down pipe from the turbo. Do I just remove the band clamp bolt or loosen it up? Any help with how to finish removal would be nice EX. pic, link, or write ups ect...

Loosen the clamp enough to slide it one way or the other. The down-pipe may seem stuck to the flange but just move it from the bottom after you have removed it from the rest of the exhaust. It's a breeze you wont have a problem it a piece of cake. I had my brother help on every one I've put on and he get's under and I sit on the motor (got it down to a science, we've done 5 now)

I'm confused

I remove the bolt holding the clamp. But it still feels like its bolted on to the turbo.

move it around from teh bottom mine was liek that alsospray some lube on it it will come off. your not going to hurt the flange there tough unless you start banging on it lol.me and my buddy did his and it was stuck and we took a long screw driver and put in on top of the dp and hit the sd with ahammer and it fell right off. keep trying

Angry V clamp

I 'm having trouble removing the clamp. I remove the T-bolt completely and still don't understand how to remove the clamp so I can remove my down pipe.

we use these same clamps on the aircraft i work on, once you loosen the clamp, take a long flat head screwdriver and pry between the clamp and the turbo flange, you will pry against the heatshield also, it takes a little bit of work,but you will get it, i actually found it harder to get the downpipe out after it is loose. good luck.

also you dont have to remove the bolt or nut completely, leave about 1/4 inch thread showong on the stud so you dont lose the nut or stud, it will slide out of the rear of the clamp, making it easier to spread the clamp away from the turbo/downpipe.

once you have it loose, go under the truck and shake the down pipe, it will help you break loose teh tight clamp, these clamps are made to really grip the material it is holding together, plus heat doesnt help. if you have issues you can feel free to call me too, 801-928-9394. let us know.
