Default How To Remove Rear Stock Header?

ok guys now this is PITA. I'm getting racingline HFC's. It all started couple days ago I remove the front cat easy but when I got to the rear one the stupid heat shield is getting in the way to remove the upper two bolts. I tired everything to remove that shield but no luck. So my only option is to remove the upper intake mod.? Nf will I be able to get to the top bolts from the top or from the bottom? Also the Sensor sun of gun's dont wanna come off the cat. If I spary some WD-40 on the sensor will it hurt em?

Thanks guys I really wanna get the headers but dont wanna deal with CA BS laws. Since i broke one cat bolt in the stock header I will be working on that Tom to get it out(I forgot to spary WD-40 on it before I used my impact gun).

I got that shield off from above but you can get it from the bottom too, just got to feel for it and use a wrench, not sockets. Getting that header out so the biggest pain in my fucking ass. If I ever sell the car, the headers go with.

The header on the right is the rear one

Thanks bro,

I broke every heat shield bolt . Do we have to have the heat shield on the car?

You think that's a pain! Try taking the header out at the same time in that tight spot. I did but had scratches from elbows down and my knuckles all busted up.Not fun. The shit we go thru for our cars, at least that's what my wife says when I go, the shit women go thru to look beautiful.
