Ah well, he'll see them when he gets home (won't you Dennis
just teasing Deng a bit
So Cornelis, I suggest to get help from someone too, because 2 people can pull harder on that original exhaust
But this is the way Wimster & I did it;
1. Put the car on small bridges, gives that extra room for manouvring under the car
2. Loosen the clamp bolt with hex wrench, size 16. Use a hammer to loosen the pipes a bit.
3. Loosen the 1st rubber towards the middle of the car
4. Loosen the 2nd rubber, at the rear of the left rear wheel. To make this more easy, unscrew the cloth in the rearwing. There is a philips srew underneath the end of the bumper. Unscrew this and pull the cloth a bit upwards.
5. To loosen the rubbers, use an old screwdriver, stick in in the hole were the metal part of the exhaust is in, and try to pull the metal part out, by lifting the crewdriver. (eruitwippen zeg maar wink ). A bit of WD40 or Siliconspray can make it more easy.
6. By wobbling the backbox up and down, the pipe will come loose of the middle pipe under the car. Use WD40 again and if needed a hammer+wooden block to gently romove it.
6a. If you want to re-use the clamp: grind off the 2 small spotwelds and use a hammer to tick it off the pipe.
7. Get the new exhaust, put on the clamp (watch the position of the bolt, should be faced down) and put its pipe over the middle pipe. Watch the small round metal spot on the middle pipe, this should go into the slot of the backbox pipe.
8. Fix the middle rubber
9. Fix the rubber near the wheel.
10. Be careful, the special bands around the rubber need to stay under the small rubber lips (topside as well as the groundside)
11. Place the backtip in the right position
12. Push the exhaust towards the front of the car, and tighten the bolt of the clamp.
