Mazda mph 2001, right side firewall catalytic converter.

Customer Question
Mazda mph 2001, right...

Mazda mph 2001, right side firewall catalytic converter. Trying to replace. I can get everything loose except for what is probably the EGR pipe. A small diameter rigid pipe right next to O2 sensor. Is the nut threaded righty tighty like normal?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Mazda Mazda2. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Mpv not mph obviously

I believe it is a 2.5 and it is an LX model. I am going to be away from the computer for a few hours.

The tube is righty tighty. You may have to use a good rust penetrant and may even need a torch to heat the tube to get it loose and out of the convertor. They tend to seize themselves and require heat to remove them.
