Good morning.

You have a total of 3 catalytic converters. What is the issue and can I help you narrow down the one that has failed?

I attached the procedure for removing the front cat or the exhaust manifold. The cats are part of the manifold itself.

I also attached the procedure for the warm up converter as well. Jut remove the clamps I circled and it is part of the main exhaust pipe.
