3" cat back on L99 hits this little valve/pipe on the passenger side

So there is this transmission vent tube thing that seems to come off the transmission it runs behind the passenger side exhaust pipe. Well, over some bigger bumps the two hit each other. Anyone have some tips on what to do?

Only thing to try is loosen it all up and readjust.

Mine was close but did not touch it. What exhaust do you have?

I had that problem. Fortunately, the tube bends easily, and you can reroute it to the left, where you have more clearance. Don't worry about breaking it. You won't. Even if you did, you'd just have a shorter vent tube (no big deal).

You have to take it out of the bracket that holds it in place, and if I remember correctly, you can even bend it by hand. If not, grab a set of pliers, and you'll be fine.
