exhaust removal

Hi all
Taking my Termi's off and could do with some tips, on the best order to do things. The manifolds are coming off ok, but how the devil do you get the springs released? Is there some trick/technique which makes it easier.

Cheers

Derek

ps therefore got a set of asymmetric termi's for sale if anyone is interested send me a u2u. For up to 2004 model.

You'r supposed to use a spring puller ... length of small dia' steel with a hook in one end and a T shaped handle on the other.

You can make one using a spoke from a bicycle wheel, length of welding rod or similar.

I used an old wire coat hanger, which worked a treat. Springs and fingers? That is hard
