You have to remove the exhaust? I thought you would be able to lay under the car and drill out the rivets and put in the new ones?

It is a bitch but with the right tools and patience it's a few hour job. When you drill the rivets don't drill too far as you will go through the inner exhaust pipe.

I'm in the same boat. Can you change out the tips from the ground?

There are a few rivets on the top of the exhaust. It'll be easier to do it with the exhaust off.

I will probably drill straight through from the bottom rivets. The holes already go through the center pipe, and it would be easy to line it up looking inside the pipe.
