It just happened
Expert:  Marc Webster replied 7 months ago.

is the exhausst secure, see if it has excessive movement side to side or front to back, and be carreful as the tip may be hot /dirty if youve been driving it.

a rattle sound would suggest loose heatsheilds or clamps, a rumbling sound would suggest a hole / leak or possible internal engine fault.
