    Default remove exhaust gasket..how?

    sorry not my Vectra this time all is good with that
    I'm helping to fit a hondajazz backbox and the only trouble im having is removing the old metal Gasket /sealer thingy off the other section of exhaust that joins the backbox.Its made of a metal type of material similar appearance to a brillo pad and it seems like its welded itself on . How would this Gasket come off so I can fit new gasket on Many thankses

    The gaskets should come off with a bit of force, a screwdriver to prise it off or pull at it with some pliers etc, normally they fall to bits with age and don't put up much of a fight.

    Bit of force try bit of lube too.

    might also be worth trying it with exhaust hot.

    is it cone shaped one?
    Do you have a new one?
