Thread: Muffler help

  1. #1

    Default Muffler help

    There are two bolts that connect the muffler pipe to the downpipe and i got one of the bolts off, but the other one wont come off, I used wd-40 and it just strips, what can I do?

    Im going to do a straight pipe out the back and I need to get it off.

    I dont want any comments saying if I cant get the bolt off then I cant do the straight pipe.

    X2.....Spray some PB Blaster on it,and let it sit for a while. Go back, spray it again, and take it off.
