Default Bank 1 catalytic converter

Hi,
Did anyone change the Bank cat converter? I want to change it on 2007 3.5l Aura, but it seems that there is no space to work on it or remove it.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you're going to do the work yourself here is my recommendation, remove the pipe that has the cat. Get yourself a black sharpie and tape measure(something you can use to make a straight line and measure). Okay first things first measure your new cat to know how much you're going to cut and Mark it where you need to cut. Okay now most important put the hook on the tape measure onto a flat part of the pipe, like the flange, draw a straight line from top to bottom if you want just for security 😂 but anyway, alignment it very important! So cut as level and straight as possible! Now spot weld the top portion, now line up the new cat with the bottom portion and spot weld that one. Now weld them both cleanlike. And reinstall.
Too hard? Just take it to you local muffler shop and have them do it if they can on the car. (doubt it) or take that pipe and cat, shouldn't change more than 50. Good luck.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
