How do you remove muffler on John Deere stx38?

I'm having the same issue. I'm trying to replace my front axle and I need to remove the muffler to get to the axle bolt. Please help. I recently replaced the front axle on my STX38 so I took off the muffler as well. The muffler's heat shield needs to come off first, I think there's just two bolts holding that in place on the front of it. If I remember correctly, there were 4 bolts total securing the muffler. There are two bolts towards the front of the muffler that connect vertically to the body of the mower, these need to be removed. If you look at the very top of the muffler where it connects to the engine you'll see another two bolts that need to be removed. I had a tough time getting these two completely out since mine were a bit rusted but they did eventually come off. Once all these bolts are removed, I had to wiggle the muffler out of the bottom of the mower. For the people doing front axle replacement - once the muffler is removed you should have access to the bolt securing the axle.

How do you repalce the vapor canister on a 2002 Chevy Prizm?

The canister is located under the rear of the car near the muffler and the gas tank. Raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands. Remove the muffler. Mark and number all the hoses on the canister. You want to get them back the right locations when you install the new one. Remove the fuel tank vent hose from the canister by pinching the tabs on the hose together. Disconnect the electrical connections from the pressure sensor and switching valve. Remove the mounting bolts and remove the canister from the vehicle. Installation is the reverse of the removal. Good luck.
