Right, my new Sportex backbox finally arrived today - so started to fit it at like 8pm tonight (d'oh).

Got U-Clamp un-done fine, and standard hanger clamp came off no problem - but it's stuck to the freaking cat-back pipe!

Have tried penetrating fluid, smacking it with a hammer, pulling at it with all i can (and that's a fair bit, look at me! lol) - have even heated the ****ing thing before smacking it!

20mins of driving around including maximum attack over some speed bumps don't even seem to have loosened it!

Without the hassle of cutting it off, what can I do?

Hacksaw it, man!

With my sportex, I had to do the same. Was good actually, as otherwise it would've stuck out from the rear bumper and looked gay - it now sits flush, only lost less than an inch.

My car sounded godly when the backbox fell off, then I got a new one on and it's back to being poo again. :sad:
