spray some pb blaster or wd40 on the silencer ring on the edge of the muffler, let it sit for awhile,,,,, then yank it out

also when the muffler is hot the silencers come out better,,, heat and cold expands and contracts,,,,,

also grind some of the material off the silencer that way it goes on easier and comes off easier!!!

done deal!

what the problem probally is, is where the bolt was to hold silencer in, the metal bends and holds it in place try spinning it as well as pulling it. if u know ur not gonna want it in there ever again u can take a screwdriver and bend the bottom of silencer where the screw was holding it in
