how to remove catalytic converter on dodge intrepid 2.7

what you will need to remove is the majority of the exhaust system. First the front resonator and all the exhaust from there back will need to be removed. Then you will need to remove the entire left side catalytic converter assembly from the manifold. Then you will need to remove just the extension pipe from the right side catalytic converter and leave the right side catalytic converter bolted to the manifold.

1 - V-BAND CLAMPS
2 - BAND CLAMPS
3 - FRONT RESONATOR
4 - INTERMEDIATE PIPE
5 - MUFFLER
6 - BAND CLAMP
7 - LEFT REAR RESONATOR/PIPE ASSEMBLY
8 - CATALYTIC CONVERTERS

The left side pipe is a one piece design with the catalytic converter made to it....the right side is a two piece design so just remove the lower portion.

to remove the band clamps. First there is a nut to remove. This would release the clamp. But may be The rust it's covered , that would make clamp bit hard to come out.--------

This clamp may stay tight even after the nut is removed or loosened. I recommend removing the nut completely and then you may need to tap on the threaded stud to force the opposite side to release from the exhaust. Try to cover the studs with something if possible so as to not damage the threads (they do state to not reuse the clamps but I have to say that I have before). You may need to use a pry bar to get the other sides of the clamp to release as well. On the exhaust pipe clamps (flat style) you can loosen the nut the majority of the way off and tap on the stud as well to help loosen its grip also.
