Hi,
I am struggling to remove the last two nuts that hold the front flexi pipe on to the bottom of the catalyst.

 
you mean this one raynkar?
 
I don't think wordingh will be back so we'll never know lol
I was only thinking that V6 mk3 cars have nuts on the flexi to cat joints.
This pic shows the rear engine bank flexi section. It has a single nut and bolt clamp where it joins the cat, and another stud and nut in the slot half way up the flexi pipe.

Great contribution to this thread ffoy

A brilliant guide. Seeing that manifold heat shield has reminded me, mine's been in the shed for years, I really must refit it :)

Could a ball joint puller fit in to remove the stud once the head has been cut off.


Just saw this MZs. You mean with the downpipe in-situ? I think the two problems you'd have are slicing off the heads on the studs with it still on the car and also there's not much area for the balljoint splitter arms to rest on

Going to have another look soon,probably will remove whole cat section and see what is 

needed, 5 bolts and 2 gaskets and probably a cat section hoping to save  the sensor.

Well... Was adjusting the handbrake cables on my mondy last week and needed to push the centre exhaust box to the side to gain access to the adjuster nut that lives above it. Done the job all OK but when I looked down to the front end of the car I noticed that something was not quite right around the flexi joint area, on closer inspection the flexi part had come adrift from the front tube part and was free to move back and forwards! I guess the bit of pipe after the fixing flange goes well inside the braided flexi part as it did not fall apart! Looked like it would be an easy job! Bit of pipe (flexi ) about 14" long with a couple of bolts on each flange!! But upon even closer inspection The bolt heads just looked like rusty round rivets! So threw the towel in and phoned my trusty garage for all things I can't/don't wanna do. Two days later ( yesterday) I go and collect and boss tell me his man had a nightmare of a time with 1 hour plus getting of old section using every tool in the box including 'hot spanners' (oxyacetylene) so £90 later ( I know flexi can be got for about £40-50 inc gaskets &bolts) job done without loosing and skin on my part and making the air blue!
