Put the T shaped part back in the pockets and loosen the nut to the end of the threads or close to it. The get a screw driver or some other type of manual leverage applicator, stick in in the v part of the clamp and give it a whack with your hand to pop the clamp loose.

the problem is the T bolt is between the firewall and the downpipe. so i cannt get the bolt back in the pockets to loosen it up more.

You dont have to loosen it up anymore if it's out of the "pocket" Take a hammer and a prybar or punch and knock the hell out of the clamp until it comes loose.

Sounds like you need to replace it anyway, so I would just cut it.

If it's still stuck on the pipe, SOAK it with PB Blaster and hit it with a screwdriver/hammer between the channel in the clamp and the up-pipe itself.

I wouldn't cut it, just cause it comes out of the pockets don't mean its junk, unless it stretched them and thats why it came out.

well keep in mind it will be stuck since has been on there for x amount of years, but yes if t-bolt is out of its pocket then take you a long screwdriver/prybar and a hammer and knock off. if you do need a new one Napa keeps them in stock
