Exhaust Silencer stuck

When I installed my new catback exhaust, I made my father happy and left the Silencer on. Well, about 2 1/2 months later, I can't get the darn Silencer off. I tried making a hook to go into the Silencer and to pull it out that way but that didn't work. Is there any trick to get these things off or have I run with it on for so long its just going to be stuck for awhile?

You can have mine, you just got to ripe it off though, lol. I'll try that, I'll run out to Wal-Mart and as soon as I get home put the wd40 on it and try using my hook I made to pull it out.

Well, my hook is made out of a metal clothes hanger that I bent and curled, lol. Not to sturdy but should do the trick.

If not WD40 try liquid wrench or PB blaster. I prefer PB Blaster over liquid wrench I used it to remove the heavily corroded bolts on my cat-back. Works great so try WD-40 and then if doesn't work give this a try.

if you haven't gotten it out yet try this:
1) wire clothes hanger to make a hook, use pliers and try to wiggle/pull it out (if pliers doesn't fit, gap it w/ a flat head. gently tap the silencer out of place w/ a mallet.
or
2) Gorilla glue it w/ a heavy stick and yank that thing out.

yea i dont think either would work, maybe the flathead but doubt it i think that will push it in farther and the glue will just fuck shit up

I got the JDM N1 Catback too. Wal-Mart was closed (I can't belive it wasn't a 24 hours Wal-Mart) I'm going to grab some Wd40 and PB Blaster in the morning. I thought about hitting it with a mallet while I had it hooked to loosen it but I was afriad it you just shove it back farther. Not enough room to use a screw driver either.

Its pretty hot now so going to see if hooking it and getting it wet will loosen it.

they usually have PB Blaster at auto parts stores like auto zone, advance auto parts etc. and I see it at Lowes also I dunno about Wal-mart give it a try and good luck. But make sure your in an open area it smells and spray it let it sit and sorta soak in then after a few minutes give it a try.

Well you have a picture above lol and if you just go to google images and type in pb blaster you will be slammed with thousands of pictures of the can and yeah best idea is an auto parts store. Just ask them if they have it and where and it's all good from there
