When removing the trans do you have to remove the exhaust and y pipe are can I maneuver around it? I'm replacing the slave cylinder so any heads up on that would be a help. Thanks

I'm doing this on the ground and I don't have a trans jack. I got the front up on jack stands and I have a haynes manual for step by step and it says I have to remove exhaust but it's so rusty theres only one way for it to come off (sawsall).I've completed all the steps up to this and if I can get around it that would save time and $ on the way back together.

OK yea will have to lower the exhaust y pipe to get room here. Now what you can do is spray the bolts with brake fluid (I know sounds wierd). Then if it still runs start the truck and get it warm and then once warm spray them again and let it cool to the touch and they should come out. Let me know how it goes.
