Question by  Rathjinngmailcom (234)

Can you tell me how to perform the home removal of a catalytic converter?


Answer by  aeturnus (474)

Restrain your car on jack stands, and then get down and look at the tailpipe. Grab the wide area, that's the converter. Unscrew the bolts, and rip that thing off.

Raise your car and secure with jackstands. Your converter will be located closer to the engine on the exhaust pipe. You can cut it off and replace with a pipe.

Take some type of metal saw and cut your exhaust pipe before and after the converter. However it must be replaced to remain street-legal.

First you have to put your vehicle on flat and jack the vehicle. Then go under the vehicle and look along the exhaust pipe until you see the catalytic converter. Then use a rachet or wrench to remove the bolts from around the catalytic converter. Then pull the converter from your vehicle.
