    Default exhaust clamps - S/S bands?

    My vehicle (2004 elite estate 2.2 direct has a stainless steel exhaust fitted. One of the clamps (presumably made of mild steel!!) is now badly rusted and loose. I was thinking of replacing it with a stainless steel band.

    Opinions please.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Dave you read my mind. Need one of these myself as I over tightened the last one and it snapped.

    I used a light cardboard cereal packet to determine the diameter by cutting out a slot firstly 51mm wide then 53mm then 55mm etc until one slipped across the pipe.
    Mine ended up at 56mm.
