Use jackstands or lift to access the underside of your car.
Locate the exhaust heat shield and remove the 10mm bolts holding it in place.
Remove the lower chassis brace.
Make sure your car is cold. Wear gloves while handling the heat shield because it is super sharp and will cut your hands.
Removing the heat shield completely is the best option. It is possible to slide it down and access the necessary parts but since it is so sharp it can get dangerous. You will need to bend it to get it out completely.
