front muffler on 2002 Volvo V70 XC

I was just told that there is a small hole in the front muffler on my 2002 xcvolvo. Can this be cut and rewelded or do I need to replace the whole muffler? I am sure this job is costly and so far been hit with a new turbo and now a timing belt, etc....please help

Some exhaust shops can weld it but depending on how bad it is and how thin the metal has been damaged by salt will make a difference on whether it can be welded. Best to replace though.
