    Exhaust Removal Tips?

    Hey,

    Headers wrapped / ready to go. Exhaust unbolted from the manifold (Liquid Wrench was a godsend there).

    Unfortunately, I'm having a hell of a time trying to get the six rubber isolation mounts off of my exhaust. Do you guys have any advice regarding how to force these suckers free (ie, which I should start with)?

    In the hopes that some of you visit the form in the next 12 hours, I'm going to hold off until tomorrow morning.

    Windex, or any lubricant. A pry bar or if they're stubborn.

    It's not that they're stuck--it's just that I'm afraid that I'm going to break something if I put a ton of pressure on the mufflers. Still, I'll give it a shot.

    I've done the exhaust many times. And I've used a lot of force, both on the muffler and rubber hangers without anything breaking.
    Even if they're not stuck, a bit of windex makes the job much easier.

    Thanks guys--you were absolutely right. Little bit of thin oil (WD-40 or Liquid Wrench) works wonders. Even getting them wet helps (it's nasty, but I bet you could spit on them if you WANTED).
