    Hi All,

    looking for some advice on how to change out my downpipe on my S3 I have a 3" installed but the flexi has been touching the 4wd shaft and worn it away so is now leaking hence the change out.....

    If I can get advice on how to do it I will otherwise put it into the garage.... I have had a look and doesn't look that easy although how hard can it be to take out a few bolts and replace a section of pipe just looks a bit of a pain getting access!.

    any advice welcome.

    Regards,
    Darren

    hmm, its not a nice job to do on your drive, iirc the top bolt near to the block is a bit of a pain, but that said i done all 3 up from under the bonnet, if you have problems getting it out undo the 3 bolts on the prop that will give you a little more space
