Use G search and end your search with lotustalk That will bring you to threads on LT. Here's service manual for you.I tried some searches for on LT for diffuser removal and exhaust removal but didn’t find anything. perhaps I’ll seach the site for tips on searching....
I've seen various people put some kinds of rubber gaskets and found in parts of the diffuser to prevent vibrations. Could be that or the adhesives from it getting stuck.Ok I did have everything removed, but I was afraid to yank on it too hard.
i just hopped under it and played with it some more and is slid out. I’ll take a look later when it’s cooler and see what was holding it up.
thano’s for the responses
Since I always need both off anyway I take both off as one unit. Yes, I never take off the 5 bolts holding them together.I almost always remove the engine pan before the diffuser. It’s rare that I don’t need both out of the way, and when removing both it’s easier to remove the engine pan first.

I’m not sure that would work (taking off as one unit) with a through-diffuser exhaust, but I can see it otherwise.Since I always need both off anyway I take both off as one unit. Yes, I never take off the 5 bolts holding them together.
Also, I unbolt everything with the car on the ground no problem. Then when I lift the first side, I pull the whole thing out the back.
One optionUpdate: auto parts store did not have the correct 02 sensor
Never a bad idea to have battery load tested for intermittent and weird issues.Also get your battery checked. I had a P0171 that stayed no matter what. Did o2 sensors, propane checked for leaks, cleaned my MAF. Nothing would make it go away. Just threw a new battery at it and BAM all fixed up.
