got my zard from geof 3 at 8 this evening , had it installed by 10

like the sound , and weight savings hate the can .


the hardest part about the install was rerouting the oxygen sensor wire

quite a bit knackery there. the rear mount for the can is also a little bodgy in my opinion , as there was no spacer to put under the bottom
rear set bracke to keep everything in good relation , i bodged it with a coupl of washers , till i can make a new mount .

now to get the mounts off the subframe and get my plate mount and tail light finished


oh

THANKS GEOF3 , HOW ABOUT A RIDE ON THAT DUCK

There should have been a lower spacer for the rear mount in the kit of parts... might be worth contacting your supplier about this.

had to drill out a spot weld on mine, that's what Monkeyhanger was talk'n about, because he informed me on how to do it. :-D Wasn't too awful bad, took me about 15 minutes, and I was take'n my time.

The dB killer is held in with a circlip - but it's a real bu66er to get hold of it.

Drilling out the spot welds sounds like a good plan, although a bit permanent unless you have welding facilities!

Hey Boss, if I wanted mine out, I had to drill the spotweld out, after the circlip was removed, it was still held in place by the spotweld. I suppose if ya wanted to put it back, the circlip itself may be enough to hold it in, but not sure. But who wants that sucka back in? :razz:

You'll need a longer than normal drill bit. Be carefull the the chuck on the drill doesnt catch the outer edge of the can. Stick some heavy duty tape around the edge will help protect the thing if you slip.

Good luck.

My can came with the dB killer kit supplied but not fitted. The circlip alone is sufficient in itself to hold the baffle in place.

I fitted mine to compare LOUD with quiet and see the difference, but now it's proving a nightmare to remove.



I think removal will be permanent... :-D
