    Smile Help removing exhaust system

    Hi guys,

    Basically ive removed the downpipe etc from the engine so my whole exhaust system is kind of just floating about.

    I basically want to remove as much of this as i can and put it onto my anni golf.

    Has any-one got any tips for this?

    Im attempting to ermove my suspension,exhaust system, arb's and brembos this weekend!

    you have the catback left to do? Straightforward mate, just get under the car and undo the bolts holding the clamps/hangers that hold the exhaust.

    I have the whole system still there including downpipe cat etc.

    I thought each section would be really hard to get out after the clamps are undone?

    Is it really that easy? Undo the exhaust clamps and each section slides out?

    I would start from the rear silencer and work my way towards the downpipe. The parts just slide out of each other...(provided there is no welding) . you won't ebleive how easy it is (if you have some spanner knowledge...lol)

    If you have ramps, it will make life easier.

    check the link I've added in my first reply

    BTW, in the link above...it says there is cutting to be done. That's only on the standard exhaust which is one single part. Yours a Milltek (from your sig)...so they are in parts and no cutting needed
