You can remove the exhaust system from your Jeep Grand Cherokee yourself. The exhaust system is a pipe that allows the air from the engine to exit out the rear of the vehicle. The air passes through a catalytic converter to eliminate the harmful byproducts of the engine. It also passes through the muffler, which eliminates engine noise. The exhaust may need to be removed for a variety of reasons, and you can complete the process in about an hour.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Locate the exhaust under the vehicle along the passenger's side.

  2. 2

    Loosen and remove the bolts on the exhaust flange directly behind the muffler with a ratchet and socket. The muffler is the round section that is mounted in-line with the exhaust pipe.

  3. 3

    Unscrew the bolts on the flange at the muffler and the downpipe with the ratchet and socket.

  4. 4

    Remove the bolts that secure the downpipe to the headers with the ratchet and socket. The headers branch apart to attach to each cylinder on the engine block.

  5. 5

    Lubricate the stock rubber isolators with lubricating fluid.

  6. 6

    Remove the exhaust system by pulling the metal bars from the stock rubber isolators. Continue until the tailpipe, muffler, catalytic converter and downpipe have been removed.

Tips and warnings

  • Allow the exhaust system to cool before removing it.
