There is no engine in so no front pipe or down pipe just the back box and mid pipe but unsure how you get the bugger off

Should be held on with just rubber hangers AFAIK. You should be able to just lever them off from the chassis hooks I think - although splitting the exhaust into sections will probably make it easier. Can also just cut the rubbers with a sharp knife!

If it's a large bore exhaust you may struggle
On a driveway. I found you really need to get the drivers rear corner very high to wiggle the back box out. You must split the rear section and mid-pipe by unbolting the join. Jack up as high as you can and remove the drivers rear wheel. On some I also had to remove the rear crossmember (4 bolts ).

How quick do you need it off?

Happy to lend a hand on Saturday for a bit in the morning. Have you got a jack and axle stands?

Mike - If you need any tools you can borrow mine. I'm on child duty Saturday morning so will struggle to get over to help.
I have a mains powered impact gun that may assist in getting the cross-member off.

When i put my fujitsubo exhaust on I took the wheel off and had to raise the car really high on axles stands to get it on. Would take 1 minute on a ramp however.

I can have a look at this on Saturday afternoon when I come over.
Will stick my racing jack and axle stands in the back of the car.

Do you have basic tools - socket set, spanners and plenty of WD40 (or similar)?
