Original Exhaust System Removal
Note: With a used vehicle, we suggest a penetrating spray lubricant to be applied liberally to all exhaust fasteners and allowing a significant period of time for the chemical to lubricate the threads before attempting to disassemble.
1) Loosen the clamps shown in figure 1 located just behind the h-pipe.
2) Loosen the clamps shown in figure 2 located just in front of each muffler assembly.
3) Beginning with the left (driver) side, using a flat blade screwdriver, pull the clip as shown in figure 3 to disengage it from the pipe.
4) Remove the left (driver) side over axle pipe shown in figure 4 by removing the front of the pipe first then sliding it out of the muffler assembly.
5) Remove the factory clamp for use during the installation of your new exhaust system.
6) Repeat steps 3 thru 5 for the removal of the right side over axle pipe.
7) Lubricate hangers and rubber isolators.
8) On left (driver) side muffler assembly, remove the hangers from the rubber isolators and remove the muffler from the vehicle as shown in figure 5.
9) Repeat step 7 for the removal of the right (passenger) side muffler assembly.
Warning: Use extreme caution during installation. Torque all fasteners according to manufacturer’s torque values and tightening sequence. DO NOT use air impact tools to tighten fasteners on Roush Performance Products Exhaust Systems. Use of such tools may result in bent flanges or gasket contact areas leading to exhaust leaks.
