it snapped off right where it touches the exhaust pipe in the back.

i searched around for clamps as thats the only thing i can think of that might work just seems like id need one at least 2" and thick enough.

would that work or is there something better?

just looking for something that doesnt require welding.

That might help a little bit but ultimately you will have to get it welded, have the flex replaced, or replace the exhaust.

I had the exact same problem and ended up having a muffler shop weld in a new piece while I waited. Cost me $120.00

Mine snapped right were the flex pipe meets the exhaust downpipe on the front. I was in school at the time and didn't have the money or time to have a shop fix it.
I got a soup can, took both ends off, used some tin snips to cut down one side, and then used some pipe straps to tighten it down as much as i could onto the pipe and form a makeshift sorta splice plate. It sucked, and it looked like crap, but it worked. It knocked the sound down (a little) and it kept a lot of the exhaust fumes out of the cabin.

But yeah, eventually, you're going to have to have it repaired or replaced.
