Best answer for Vw Passat Catalytic Converter
there are muffler shops that can do welds and clamps, the idea is when a cat goes bad the material inside falls apart and plugs the pipes and often they smell and get red hot, not safe, i removed all the material from my faulty converter and replaced it 3 days later passed my emissions no problem.
