Help, remove exhaust tip #5134924 06/15/19 12:03 PM

I picked up a cheap factory exhaust tip today. It was stuck on the old exhaust so good that we cut it off.

Now I have it home, how do I remove the tip without damaging it? I’ve tried to put the pipe in a vise and spray with penetrating oil, but it won’t budge. Any other suggestions?

Cut the exhaust pipe right at the edge of the tip then use a sawzall or bare hacksaw blade to split the pipe inside the tip. One cut might do it.

The tip has a split in it already use a big screwdriver in the split and twist to spread it a little, penetrating oil and twist it out.

It almost looks like it may have been soldered on . If that would be the case, you can heat it hot enough to melt the solder.

Heat the neck with a propane torch, cool the exhaust pipe with ice, might work.
Ice it first, and some quick heat.

Yep, then reach in with a needle nose and "spiral it out"

It had a clamp on it

I think I’m going to have to do the above. It won’t budge by prying at the splits. I just don’t want to ruin the finish, so I’ll have to play with it when I have more time. It has about 4” to 5” of tailpipe inside the tip, so it’s going to be fun!

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I’m determined to get that sucker off there! smile

Take a cold chisel in the split and beat it inwards a little, no need to go postal on it just enough to bend it.

👍
I had to heat up a o2 sensor one time to get it to budge. It just didn't want to turn cold.

4-5 inches inside changes things. I've done it with maybe 2 inches inside. Time spent at current wage vs buying a new tip (with consideration given for the DIY satisfaction factor)...

Cut off your current pipe in the same spot, then use a union and clamps/welding to connect the whole mess.

I got it removed today. Lots of elbow grease and a bit of cursing smile

I ended up cutting off the excess pipe short, about 1" sticking out. Then clamped it in my vise and used a sawsall to cut the exhaust pipe inside the tip (like AZJeff recommended). At that point, I was able to push it out with a mallet and a screwdriver. Now to clean it up and put it on my truck!

Thanks again everyone!
