Cat Removal Question

I went to try and remove my cat and was having trouble with the back clamp on my '03. I got the front off fine but on the back, I got the nut off but couldnt get anything to budge. How did it go when anyone else did it? Did you just loosen the bolt and pull on the cat until it came loose?

mine slid right off just like it was a fresh install. Guess I was lucky, but if everything is loose lay on your back and give it a few good kicks, just dont let it fall on you! That dude is pretty heavy for its size.

When you took the nut of the back clamp, did the clamp loosen or anything?

Soak it with BBblaster, and have a couple beers... Make sure everything threaded is removed, and carefully whack it with a hammer.

Repeat as required...

He means PB Blaster, that stuff works miricals.

Get your self a small prybar or big screwdriver, altho I do not recomend useing anything except the right tool for the job, and pry the clamp apart after letting the PB Blaster work its majic. Then kick it like you mean it.

You can probably fit a flat tip under it and GENTLY pry it loose. Put some kinda lube/penatrant on it for a bit though
