If anyone has some spare time this weekend and could help me fit an exhaust (cat back) and fuel filter( It keeps leaking) I would be grateful and would supply a carton of beer for your trouble, I am short on axel stands and only have a jack since I have only recently moved.

Bascially I need someone who has done a fuel filter before and someone to hold the exhaust up for me.

Many thanks in advance.

I changed my exhaust myself and we got the tailpipe section out of the muffler just by leaving WD40 on it overnight then wiggling it out. Be careful putting WD40 on the exhaust though!

If the car is up on four stands then that should allow you to spin the exhaust around enough to get the rear section over the diff and out from under the car,
