Tips for Removing Stock Exhaust

I just removed the stock muffler from my car and I thought I'd share some knowledge from my experience.

1. Make sure you do this when the car is cold and hasn't been running in a while

2. The only tools you need are a 14mm wrench (I used a 1/2 socket wrench), some WD40, some jack stands with a floor hydraulic lift, or a ramp.

3. It might be easier to use a ramp and have the back end raised. This gave me the clearance I needed. You can get the plastic ones at Autozone

4. The two 14mm bolts are located towards the front of the car, behind the intersecting piece at the end of the muffler.

5. I would remove the bolts first and then start on the rubber hangers.

6. Start with the hanger closest to the tip of the muffler, then the one towards the passenger side, and finally the driver side.

It takes a lot of pulling and tugging to get the exhaust off. The ramp seemed the more secure way since the car is being rocked back and forth. It took me about an hour to do but I'm sure it can be done in at least half that time.

Hope this helps

Buy a pair of those if you do exhaust work on a regular basis.
