Heard an Exhaust Rattle found this.

Where the rattle came from



And then I found this rattling around between the heat shielding and exhaust piping
(thank you creepy for providing a perfect white contrasting background )





This was between the heat shielding and exhaust pipe


WHAT IS IT!?
looks like some sort of bracket because it it bent to the radius of the piping and has what looks like 2 slots for bolts to secure it down.

I heard it while accelerating from a stop while turning right or left sounded like a bean in a tin can lol
also made it do the noise while parked in drive and turning wheel BARELY right then BARELY left just enough to up my RPMs slightly

It's no biggie, very common, just throw a hose clamp on it. Or a lot of people just tear it off, but my opinion is if Nissan thinks there should be a heat shield there, then there should be.

Edit: after re-reading, I take it your rattle is gone but just wondering what the little rusted piece is? It's part of a hanger I believe, I pulled off a similar piece.

One of the countless brackets and shields that rust through on all 1st Gen exhausts.

That's a NISMO Flux Capacitor, but they do that when you don't replace the enriched plutonium for it, now its ruined.

That means your X can ONLY travel into the future one day at a time, and it takes 24 hrs per trip.

Other than that, you'll be OK.
