I will not tell you that it's impossible to break the header bolts on the engine but I took mine apart many times and never had a problem...Good luck but you should be OK.

Why isn't it possible???

I've done mine a bunch of times, on a SWT. Is the WT a narrower bellpan?

Just to be clear, you want to remove the big heavy thing circled in green? Can't you just yank the 6 springs (highlighted in yellow)?

I've done it lots, but I'm driving a super-wide track.

I think the wide track has the same belly pan. Try it, it's only held on with springs. Best way to remove the springs is with a pair of vise grips, you snap the vise grips on the end of the spring and stretch it free, and the vise grips hold onto the spring so it doesn't shoot accross the shop. Wear glasses.

I think there's four on the front of the muffler, and two on the rear, and maybe one more under the front to hold it on the chassis.

After the springs are off you can gently work it out.

I think that's what he has a SWT, there wasn't a v800 skandic in the WT, just the expedition

xmptsunami, you got magic fingers. LOL!
So you've tried?

What's the issue? The exhaust only slides into the muffler about 1/2 inch or so, and you'll get some flex out of the flex bits on the exhaust.

If it's really super crazy tight somehow, just loosen off the engine mounting bolts and rotate the engine a bit. You can reset the engine where it was by looking at the witness marks from the washers (line up the bolts and washers with the clean spot on the mounts).

Yeah I think the question didn't consider pulling the motor mounts. Without that I don't think it comes out, but it's probably a lot quicker to lean the engine over a bit than to pull that Y pipe.

I have like 8 heads for these here, some with crazy high miles (40K?) and not one Y pipe bolt is seized...
