How to slide the loose, unclamped tailpipe from the 240GL Wagon, and to disconnect the muffler from its mount. 200 1986

I welcome your likely laugh at my failure to find these two pathetically trivial questions asked or answered anywhere precisely — whether in my reading of your 7-9 hundred series Maintenance FAQ (beginning with its oldest and earliest entries), or my rummaging throughout your website using either your own search device here, or those of google, bing, yahoo, dogpile, or anything else.

(1) —>>> Please tell me how to create sufficient lateral clearance to remove and reinstall (rather than replacing) — without distorting, damaging or destroying anything — the rearmost muffler, or even so much as the tail pipe itself, now that I've unscrewed and removed the four Kroil-soaked 13-mm nuts and their two u-clamps, and slid the tailpipe to port (to the left) only an inch or two, till it kisses the interior panel abaft the wheel well that obstructs any further movement, without exposing the end of the muffler's outlet.

I suspect that in another inch or so the tailpipe would slip all the way off.

Were the muffler's two blocky-looking hangers not holding it in place, I suspect but do not know that, the muffler would slide freely away from the fore-and-aft assembly of exhaust-pipe/resonator/exhaust pipe/exhaust-manifold that I would rather not wobble back and forth.

(2) —>>> Okay; I know: this second question is silly.
Please indulge it for me, just to help me play it safe.

How to remove the muffler from its hangers is not entirely obvious to me as I lie there on my creeper beneath it on my back.
Kindly show and tell your simple-minded servant (me) whatever you can about the non-destructive disassembly or simple separation and replacement of the muffler please.

I've loaded two images up to your Image Library, entitled
Tailpipe, Loosened but Its Removal Obstructed (a) at the joint, port side, looking aft,
and
Tailpipe, Loosened but Its Removal Obstructed (b) at the obstruction, port side, looking aft,
but how to coax this form to cite them here and to link you to them directly eludes me now.
