Installing 200TDI downpipe question

Do I need to remove the crossmember to install or am I missing something?

The 200TDI is not native to a 1985 110, so you did not provide enough info to get an accurate answer.

IME, yes... If you want an easier life in the future, get a 2.5TD downpipe. It is in 2 peices and can be installed with everything in place.

Thanks guys. I ended up pulling it. Pretty easy after spreading the chassis- dropped right down. Btw- here's what 30 years of dirt inside the x-member looks like.

Ha! Chris, just leave some space in case the system moves when the engine is under load. You don't want that pipe rattling against that chunk of metal. Give yourself some room as it passes by the clutch slave flex hose.

There is supposed to be a heat shield below the slave.
