When I replaced my tips for some titanium ones I found that when I reversed the clip so that the bolt was on the other side I could then actually get a socket on it by going thru the gap between the two tips and therefore not needing to touch the undertray at all. Just makes it that much easier to remove for cleaning takes about 2 minutes only.

Hambroski - just reverse it up onto the kerb or a couple of bricks. You don't need that much room under it.

Andy400r - I thought about that but decided not to because I will not be taking them off again as cleaning them now is a doddle in situ.

You dont need to. I did it on the ground without removing the tray.

I vouch for autosol polish, it also brought the shine back to my alloys after the winter road salt corroded the plished rim. Great stuff, been around for ages

Do the plastic clips just lever off with a wide tipped/bladed screw driver?

Yes they do . Put a flat end screwdriver on them and wiggle the central piece up. Once a tiny bit proud you can grab it with your fingers and continue the wiggle till it pops out.

Thumbs up GT-R exhaust

Solution : I squirt ' Muck-off ' on the end of the pipe and then go for a coffee.
When I get back it just washes off with a hosepipe.
If its really bad - use a brush as well

But that doesnt solve the issue of the inner pipe sticking out through the tailpiece IMO looking a bit cack. Moving the tailpieces out just a small amount gives it a more finished look.

how long does it take others for their clean exhaust tips to go black? for me it's one 10 min drive and bright shiny polished tips are completely black inside cleaning them is pointless. I thought AP would reduce this somewhat but seems not to.

Just removed my tips without removing any panels or jacking the car up,
Remove the inners first put a jack under the outer tip and lift it about 25mm, this makes it easy to get a socket in, once the inners are removed the outers are fully accesible

The best product I have found to keep them clean as well as for ease of cleaning is a product called REJEX.The y use it on planes so they can just rinse off bugs and grime.It also works superb on rims.

Autosol does the biz for me, but haven't removed them yet for a proper clean, may give this idea a go though, is there enough room to get some penetrating fluid onto the nuts, don't think mine were removed before and don't want to ring them.

Its a bit awkward seeing if the wd 40 has covered the clamp bolts, i snapped 1 bolt but i got it out and replaced it with another one, the bolts have about 25mm sticking through the nut so you can put it in a vice to get the snapped stud out.

A WD40 can with a straw will reach no probs. A healthy squirt left for 24 hours to penetrate will avoid snapped studs..........hopefully !
