First make sure the car is cool. Then you will need to get under your Thunderbird and remove the clamps that hold the catalytic converter in place between two lengths of exhaust pipe. You will then be able to remove the converter.

Why does your catilac converter heat up so brigth red it is a 1989 Jeep Cherokee?

I dont quite understand the question, but if it is what i think it is, then the reason a catalytic converter heats up very hot is because it is a component that uses exhaust fumes, and ehaust fumes are hot as they are the end result of an explosion that happened in the engine, therefore heating up its surroundings and making the catalytic converter hot. a catalytic converter glowing red is normal, and even in my 50cc moped (which was new) the catalytic converter glowed red, so for one in a car engine, that doesnt surprise me (far more exhaust fumes).
