Is it really is like brand new, as opposed to just looking like it,
but really being shot from the inside? If it is like new, I don't
see why it can't be welded back together. They have welds from the
factory. But I don't see why one that was in good condition with the
metal all there, would just snap off. Those pipes are fairly heavy
metal, when new.
Not clear what year, model, etc. I got a MB OEM one from Rusty for my
80 300SD for $180. Given that price, it's probably not be worth it to
fool around with it.
Three muffler shops told me that welding the flex
pipe won't fly, it's too thin. The assembly for my
'92 300D is about the same price, not worth
doinking around with. Seems that the elegant
solution would be to put a flange on the
downstream end of the flex pipe. Thanks.
