Check the exhaust hangers, one or more may be broken, some are a donut and hook style and easily replace, if you can locate the impact area you could look at adding an aftermarket hanger to firm up the exhaust.

Hope this is of some help.

Sounds like a broken U clamp. Get under the car and pull on the exhaust (while its cold) and see where the tailpipe has broken free from the bottom of the car. Then secure it with a new clamp. In a pinch, have always used a wire hanger for emergency repair.

Whenever I go over potholes or 1995 Ford contour bumpy roads it sounds like metal rattling in the passenger side under the trunk


First, check to make sure your spare tire and jackstand are secure and not moving around. That could be a really simple cause, and free to fix.
Second, with the car off and cooled down, take your hand and try to wiggle the muffler. The muffler or exhaust pipe leading to the muffler could be loose. This is probably what's causing the rattle.

2000 cabrio rattling muffler


My rattling occurred when the exhaust system was taxed because the bracket was tweaked by something. It was very annoying. This may require some savvy thinking because the exhaust system gets hot and wrapping anything around the pipe that is flammable is a VERY BAD idea. There is an area where the exhaust system mounts to the body and a rock, a pothole, or some object on the road tweaked the bracket just enough to cause the pipe to bump and rattle against the frame. Find this area (may be different part in your case) if I remember correctly this issues starts around the area where the exhaust system curves over the frame near the mid-back area of the axle (at least that is where my issue was.) and figure out how to tweak it back and the rattling should stop. This is where the savvy thinking part comes into play to keep the costs at a minimal.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu. I recently replaced the front brake pads. After this when driving down the road when i hit bumps something in the frontend rattles, i can hear and feel it.. when i hit or ride...


A loose pad could do it.
Check the pad anti-rattle clips again. The pads should be snug in the calipers. Its possible the new pads are not the exact same shape as the old ones.
