Buy a catalytic converter specific to your car.Remove the 02 sensor before unbolting the catalytic converter. Simply bolt the new part in place. Reattach the exhaust pipes and 02 sensor.

You need to jack up your car and get under it to see what your setup is. Then unbolt the catalytic converter from the system. After you unhook the exhaust you can remove the converter. Now install the new one and loosly bolt it up, tighten up the exhaust. Once you have the exhaust tightened, tighten up the converter.

A catalytic converter is replaced pretty much the same as a muffler. Measure the replacement unit and cut the pipe section out. Then slip the new unit on and weld or clamp it in place.

Well its like replacing the muffler on a car .First take the old one out so the new one will go in to its spot .remove the four bolts that hold it in place remove the convertor .Make sure that the gaskets dont get pinched when you put them back in
