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.

Sounds like an aluminum can is rattling in the muffler?

Probably the aluminum heat shield between the muffler and the floor pan is rattling. Against something. Easy fix at muffler shop, should cost less than $50 to repair.

My 2000 Subaru Outback has a loud rattle from the rear gate (ie door)

Check your rear stabilizer bar an make sure that all the bolts are still intact. You may also want to crawl under the vehicle and give your muffler a shake to ensure that no mounts are missing. these are the most common issues associated with rattling from the rear of vehicle.

2000 vw cabrio had a clunking sound when slowing down when [driving it]

Could be muffler hitting body, engine mount, differential, balljoint, or cv joint.

The muffler would be more from the back.
You can rev the engine with the hood open to see if the motor mounts are weak.
Balljoints would tend to also vibrate through the steering wheel.
Cv joints would tend to also rattle on slow, tight turns.

Exhaust pipe rattles when car idles. Had muffler

Check the heat shield on the Catalytic Converter, after a few years they start to rust off and rattle. Crawl under the Pathfinder and bang along the Converter and muffler area and see where it's coming from.   Good chances are, it's from the heat shield since you already had everything changed from the Cat back.
Good luck and hope this helps.
