Remove the Catalytic Converter from your Car

Pull the car up on car ramps. Slide under the car. The catalytic converter is located behind your front tires and in the centre of the bottom of your car. Unscrew the bolts that hold the metal shroud on over the catalytic converter. Unscrew the three bolts attaching the front of the catalytic converter to the exhaust pipe from the engine manifold and unscrew the three bolts attaching the end of the catalytic converter to the exhaust pipe that is connected to the muffler.

Catching the Platinum

Lay a clean towel or sheet (preferably a light colour so you can see the platinum pellets) on the floor of your garage.

Removing the Platinum

Stand the catalytic converter up on one end on the towel. Use a hammer to tap the top of the catalytic converter 10 to 20 times. Slowly raise the catalytic converter off the towel and allow the platinum pellets to come out. Flip the catalytic converter over end wise and hold the catalytic converter a few inches above the towel, hammer the other end of the catalytic converter to get any leftover platinum pellets still in it out.
