Default Muffler removal tips

Hello everyone, i recently decided to change out the mufflers on my 04 maxima, but keep the stock mufflers intact for if i want to sell the car in the future. The right side muffler slid right off but the left one is proving extremely difficult, i dont want to pay anyone to do this because that would be a waste of money. So the question is does anyone have any tips on removing a stuck exhaust? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Force it man. The guy at the shop just slid mines out. Get some WD40 on it.

I have been using penetrating oil, tried wd40 at first and nothing is hapenning, managed to move it like 3 mm. Once i get it past that little pin/ nut it should be easier because i can twist it then! I guess il just have to keep on pulling
