Yes the muffler needs replacing, you cannot replace the baffles in the muffler as the muffles is welded together.

Why does 2006 nissa sentre SE-R SP 1.8 L make a loud exhaust noise? is it just a muffler?

It could possibly be a baffle in the muffler that is causing it to vibrate with acceleration from the engine, or even a exhaust leak from a connection that broke or the gasket has failed. The catalytic convertor might also be the culprit. I would take the vehicle into a shop that specializes in exhaust work and let them put it up on lift to see whats actually going on.

Loud rattleing from exaust

Rattling from exhaust indicates a failure or parts. Check that the cat converter is in one piece and not collapsed . Check mufflers for holes where the baffles inside are spot welded indicating loose baffles. Check for loose /rusted mounting brackets. Check for broken pipes and manifold fittings.

There is a loud metallic rattle/clacking noise coming from my exhaust after the bikes engine is hot, basically after riding for 15-30 mins when I crack the throttle at a complete stop in gear or in...

Sounds like the baffle is loose inside the muffler and when it heats up and expands you get movement. I would remove muffler when its cool and try to shake it and inspect it closer. May need a new muffler.

I want more sound from my pipes (australian specs).. how do i knock the restrictions out of the mufflers?

If you remove the baffles from your exhaust pipes the ignition timing and tuning will need attention or it will run rough.
I find it best to buy Screaming Eagle pipes or Slash Cut pipes, they have the correct resistance for backpressure but are very loud!!!!
If you wish to remove the baffles, the procedure will depend on the design of the pipes. There is usually a "pop" rivet somewhere underneath them that if you drill it out the baffles will pull out.
In the UK they fail their roadworthyness test if they have no baffles.
Loud pipes save lives, ride safe!

We have a 2002 nissan altima that has started making a loud rattling noise. There appears to be two rings loosely hanging on a flexible portion of the exhaust.

Just take it into the exhaust people and they will rehang it with new surports plus the muffler might have baffles broken .

Noise from mufflers

It could be the exhaust baffles inside the pipe have given away from its spot weilding whn new, this is due to rust and off course usage.
Try to kick the exhaust pipes (gently and see if theres the same kind of nosies you get when you ride and cruise.

Still loud

Have you checked the flex pipe section under the engine, and the gasket between the manifold and cat/flex pipe section? Those are two places they usually start to leak from either a blown gasket, or the flex section rusts out under the protective covering.
