Manifold to Cat gasket/Seal?

2001 X5 4.4 - I've got an exhaust leak at the coupling between the manifold and the cat. It looks like just two flared ends of the pipes with the two football shaped brackets so there must be one of those graphite type gaskets or seals between them except no parts list I can find shows them. Any idea's?

There is No Gasket/Seal

Never mind - finally heard from the local dealer - it took them a while to get the answer but there is No Gasket or seal. It's just the two pipes that butt against each other so I must have rust build up thats causing the leak. Just have to pull them apart and clean things up? In theory anyway....
