Removing Cat-back

Alright so I have a borla catback coming in later this week and me and a buddy are planning on installing it. I just need a couple tips or pointers on removing the stock catback. I'm pretty sure I have to cut it, but one of my only questions is about the rubber holders. How do I get the hooks out of them

Use 15mm sockets or bolts. 4 bolts and wiggle it off

It takes some elbow grease to get them out.....you can spray them with some lubricant to try to help slide them out. Just make sure it's a lubricant that won't dry out the rubber.

You don't need spray really just have someone help you or use some muscle

X1, you shouldn't need it. But I have experienced some where it came in handy and honestly back then I didn't know anything about rubber compounds and u just used penetrating spray. But that was on some old hard rubber ones. I have even had to melt some off before they were so old and hard. Just use your hands and wiggle it out. Make sure the car is on jack stands securely before you get under it and start tugging though
