Has anyone here installed a rear section themselves? Is it something I can do with a couple of axle stands and a can of plus gas?
The rear section isn't seperate from the middle box. It's all one system from the CAT back.
fit a rear box, but as the middle box is in unknown condition, you may be better advised in installing a full CAT-back system.
If I have miss-understoof you, and you are talking about a full
system in the above question, then the answer is yes, you can do it at home quite easily.
I'll give you a run down:
Jack up the car on the passenger side and support using a minimum of two axle stands.
Undo the three bolts or the U-clamp holding the exhaust to the CAT.
Undo the handbrake cable support brackets (2) so that it drops clear of the exhaust.
Place a support object under the middle box.
Undo the rubber bush under the handbrake cables.
Undo the rubber bush retaining the middle box, and let the box drop onto the support object.
Undo the rubber bush holding the rear box to the boot base.
Drop rear box onto ground.
Pull the exhaust out from under the car ensuring that it does not place excessive strain on the handbrake cable.
Install is the reverse of removal!
Replace all bushes, they only cost a few shillings!
Use Halfords "Rubber lucricant" on the bushes to make life easy when installing them!
If you need an air-tight seal on the U-clamp, you can use some exhaust paste to seal it up.
