2005 V70 Catalytic converter repair

Post by Udp » Sat Jul 07, 2018 4:38 pm

Brand new here, but I have a 06 v70 that I’ve changed the PCV system on using these great tutorials.

So I just wanted to add more sugar to the pot and link to a video to someone who changed their catalytic converter on their 2005 2.4 v70. It was good enough to get the idea on how to successfully accomplish it. I’ve been reading into how to change out gaskets from the exhaust manifold and where it meets the cat pipe flange.

One thing I’m reading, these studs will be quite difficult to remove if rusted and heated in place. The video describes heating, prob by way of propane torch, and impacting out. The guy used bolts and washers to reattach the cat downstream.

Here is the link. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=btEh75_OkoY.
