Hi All,
The Flex pipe on my 06 has developed a leak and I need to replace it. Does anybody have experience with this? I assume I have to remove the cross member to have access. But I'm concerned about the bolts attaching the pipe to the headers. Are they difficult to remove (like a locking nut)?

Not sure if we've ever heard that one before. Experience with under body repairs on other vehicles tells me that at least in the rust belt areas, that torching (burning) corroded bolts is frequently necessary.

A 13 year old exhaust system will be difficult to disassemble. If you don't have experience with this work, it would be good to have a handy friend help with the job. Yes, a torch can help. Get a MAPP gas torch. If you preheat a stubborn bolt to red heat, it will often allow you to break it lose. Of course, you need good, properly fitting wrenches.

And keep a fire extinguisher handy.
