Hey Guys!

I have a 2010 Versa Sedan 4D 1.8L that (according to a couple mechanics) needs a new Catalytic Converter. Since the catalytic converter went out my MPG has dropped through the floor and I would like to stop burning as much fuel as a hummer.

Since the mechanics are estimating something around $1,200 I would like to know how difficult it is to do myself. From what I understand its a direct fit in component?

I was looking at this one online, but have no clue if it is the correct model or not, and I cant seem to find out what I actually need.

Someone with a little more experience care to throw me a couple tips or point me in the right direction? Thank in advance!

Can't imagine it being too difficult. The hardest part will probably be loosening the bolts. Their website says they have great customer service, so if you get stuck in the process, I'm sure they'll be glad to help you out. I say go for it, and save yourself 1000!

I have a 2011 1.8 l and it was really easy I did my cat and it was the four bolts two on each side of the converter itself and there's one small piece of metal cross bracket underneath the front part of converter to remove and that's it you don't have to remove anything else I put mine up on ramps in my driveway and did the catalytic converter just be extremely cautious and maybe even replace your ignition coils just to be safe with your spark plugs because the day after I caught a cylinder to misfire and I'm pretty positive I burnt it up especially if you bought a cheaper one like I bought one off RockAuto for $300 Walker brand OEM replacement and it only worked right for about a day best part is it's been hell trying to diagnose it because I haven't had any check engine lights
