I used a 2x4 and jack on the end of the exhaust top to pop it loose and then a plastic razor blade to clean up and then right back together!

so this is the new-old version.  Now they are making a tab on the FAE just like the one I attached to the trim tab.  Mine has a small section of tubing with rubber inside it for the stabilizer to attach to.

Walk me through this.  Do I need a debond product or nah?  Just remove screws, loosen exhaust hoses & jack away till they break free?  (I'm installing STE's)

I just took out the screws and went. Only took one or two pumps on my little jack so nothing crazy. If you start jacking and they don’t pop free then re-evaluate. But shouldn’t take much.

Ooooh...like that new bracketless one.  I just ordered the FAE for my 2016 F22.  Wonder if this is what I'll get.

You should. I didn't see brackets in the kit I ordered around Christmas... But it's still sitting in its box all nice and cozy with packing peanuts, so I'm not quite sure if there a bracket hiding in there.
