Hey guys, i started putting on my new exhaust system. The only problem i had so far is removing the 3 bolts from the cat. Anyone have some input as to how i can remove them? thanks in advance.

buy a can of PB Blaster or Liquid Wrench - something that claims to loosen rusted bolts. Spray it on the bolts a day before, then a few times over the course of the next day, then try again.

i actually just did mine about an hour ago, i'm replacing my clutch and needed to take my downpipe off and disconnect it from the cat. unless you don't intend on taking out your radiator and fans behind it, this won't help. if you already took them out then just spray on some WD-40, leave it for like a half hour, take a 13mm, i believe, wrench or socket and a rubber mallet. i swung the mallet from the driver side towards the passenger side. werked great and with ease, alot better than me using the socket with an ext. from underneath the car. i hope this helps, if you need any more info on how i took out those bolts, just email me at [email protected], good luck

just put a little muscle behind it. mine were very rusted. all i do is put the closed end of the wrench on the bolt and then get another wrench and put the closed end of it on the open end of the other end of the wrench. lock it in and push like i mofo. this works for me everytime it just takes some muscle and a minute at the most.
