Stock muffler removal

I know that this might been asked before but I can't seem to find an answer. Well I tried to remove my stock mufflers and I removed the driver side easily but when I tried to remove the passenger side it wont come. Some people said to unbolt the bolts that hold the hangers, so I unbolted them and it still hanging there. It seems that the muffler is stuck to the mid pipe and yeah I unbolted the clamb the hold the muffler and the mid pipe together. does any one know what to do ? BTW I tried WD-40 and that didn't do anything too.

PB blaster if it's rusted on. Also if it's been run recently, the heat makes the metal expand, so wait till its cool.

Also make sure all 3 hangers are actually off or not getting hung up n on anything.

I found it so much easier just taking off the mid pipe as well.

Of course you have to break it loose from the clamped connection first, as it sounds like you're doing. Short of a lot of rust I would suggest you look for a small strip of metal that attaches the clamp to the muffler pipe and cut or break it. This may help to separate the connection. Apparently some cars have it and some don't. I had it on my 2014.
Not helpful for you but in my case I didn't have to remove anything else nor did I cut those metal attaching strips until after I removed the mufflers. Of course my car was new enough that I didn't have any rust.

My advice for removing the stock mufflers is cursing a lot (though I usually just start off with a good old fashioned "You have got to be kidding me").

And dish soap to lubricate the the rubber so the hangers slide in and out easier.
