Q: exhaust needed clamp on pipe, on 2002 Audi A6 Quattro

told I needed an exhaust sleeve to repair the exhaust pipe connected to engine. The clamp
was rusted and hanging. I looked up this part in Audi parts and could not find one. They mentioned that the exhaust system had some welding done to exhaust system at one time and a sleeve was put on the pipe verses a clamp.

Does this sound correct to you.

if you just need the clamp, it can be found at any autozone, napa, etc. its a half circle bar with threads on the end where you can tighten it up. If you need the sleeve, just measure the diameter of the exhaust pipe and use what fits.
