It just happened
Expert:  Marc Webster replied 12 days 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.
