    - make sure the car is cold and hasnt been driven for an hour or two unles you have asbestos fingers then .....treat your self to a new clamp = the parts(pipe and exhaust box) should have a flange (ooh er missus) that meets up and the clamp then pulls them together and holds them in place - the only time you should need any "sealant" is if there is a leak of gasses suggesting that the parts have not fitted correctly to start with
