Dizzy Replacing Front Flex Exhaust Pipe on SL1 Help Pls. ?!?!?

Replaced the midsection exhaust pipe and cat on my SL1 and I must say that the car's performance has really improved.

I noticed that the front flex pipe is looking a little frayed and I ordered a replacement.

Replacing that section looks very tricky as at least one of the bolts looks totally innaccesible... do I really have to remove the header as well to remove the front flex-pipe?

I tried searching around in the How-To section but couldn't find a "How To" on replacing the front exhaust flex pipe section....

I'd be grateful for some Help and advise...

thanks in advance,

Tony

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The down pipe and flex pipe are the same pipe. One end is bolted to a flange at Cat and the other is bolted at a flange on the bottom of header.

I know what my Front Flex or "Down" pipe is. MY problem is how to remove/replace it.

Do you actually know how to remove the flex pipe or "down" pipe as you call it? If so please advise.

Thanks in advance,

Tony

Tony, where did you get your flex pipe from? I'm looking to replace mine as well.
