Never DIY "clean" a Catalytic converter, you will destroy the coatings.

But be careful, as the honeycomb structure is very delicate and can come loose....

That does look like its on its last legs. They are not as expensive as they were a few years ago and there are lots available now on the aftermarket.

Looking at that, I would replace it as it seems to be disintegrating. Maybe it has been damaged by a previous clean?

Looking at the condition, - any sort of dismantling may cause it to break apart, so I wouldn't risk it personally, but if you do, just be very careful.
