Help on exhaust "quick please"

I'm up dating my exhaust. I have the old system off except for the down pipe. I have the nut backed off the band " how does the band come off" I don't want to force anything. The MBRP instructions did not provide how the band comes off. All help appreciated - thanks guys

you dont have to take the nut all the way off, once you have it loose, real loose, just take a screwdriver and pry under the lip of the clamp and it wil pop loose. then you can squeeze the clamp together and take the backside of the clamp screw out of the keeper allowing the clamp to spread apart even farther. then you will ba able to rotate the D/P and make it come loose from the turbo. i hope this helps, if not PM me and ill take a picture for you showing you where to pry and where to take the clamp loose.

If you spray some penatrating fluid on the clamp it should let go. Sometimes you have to pry under the flange of the clamp. Good luck!

I have removed a couple, and found that if you spray it with some sort of break free fluid while its hot, it will almost jump off. Good Luck with it!

i had to have someone help me because the screw was spinning, not allowing the nut to back off. a 2 ft crow bar from underneath holding it while a helper backs off the nut on the clamp. I also used pb blaster, but I also needed the leverage of the pipe by the cross member to break the dp from the turbo. You can also take off an easier clamp to see how they work if you want.
