Exhaust hitting underbody Sign In

I have a 96 Audi A4 AWD 5 speed. The guy i bought it from didn't do a very good job at taking out the exhaust when the CV joint broke. When i got the car the exhaust was taken off/cut in multiple spots. since then i have attempted to weld everything back together (not the best at welding) but it is quite now. one thing i did notice that after putting the exhaust back on it seems to be hitting the body of the car (kinda in the middle of the car) the previous owner cut the rubber mounts off the exhaust aswell as the frame. I am not sure how to stop the hitting on the undercarriage. ive checked the heat sheilds and they seem intact but it sounds like it hits the middle portion of the car when i release the clutch and go to drive it, sounds almost like a banging or rubbing. I am TOTALLY LOST! I can move the exhaust around by hand and kinda reenact the sound but it doesnt do it at idle... PLEASE HELP!! Thanks in advanced!!

This whole thing is making no sense at all.
Why your exhaust system is cut into pieces I have no idea
Why it had to be removed for a C/V axle I have no idea
and what you expect us to do about the exhaust system you hacked up I have no idea.

Take it to an exhaust shop and get all the hacked up pipes replaced.
