Default Exhaust noisy sound after a hit?

My exhaust was sounding fine till i tumbled the buggy and it got hit on the side on the exhaust, and caused the exhaust to slip out if the silicone coupling tube with the manifold. I put it back with a new ziptie but now it sounds diffirent louder noisier weird and the tune got all messed up.

is there a way to disassemble and fix? Though it doesnt seem anything is loose inside im sure there is some inner piece rattling.

how would one go about taking it apart? Using a torch? Or cut it open with rottary tool? What should be used to solder it back up?

The internal baffle probably broke loose. Not an easy fix as these pipes are either soldered or welded together. Neither is very easy to do without some serious skill. Aluminum is NOT easy to solder or weld. I’d suggest replacing the pipe.

As you can not tell exactly what is wrong, how in hells name can we provide a fix?

Unlucky my crystal ball is in the repair shop so from here I can not take a look what is wrong.

Thanks for the comic relief...

For such a simple object there simply isnt much that can go wrong...
its obviously the internal baffle...

I was looking for confirmation as i cant find any similar experiences on any forum, so needed confirmation that a fully welded object can have somthing knocked loose!!

Even with a screwdriver i cant cause the baffle to move or shake! So its probably poorly spot welded and only one or more spot welds are broke...

If you smash the exhaust a lot of things kan be wrong. That you can not find any proof of a broken weld does noet mean thay it did not happen with yours. You can not tell so how must we?
Oh, just for your info, the exhausts are soldered.

Other things to check:
- Crack in the tail pipe?
- Damaged exhaust rubber?
- tail pipe facing the body instead of the hole in the body?

fixing aluminum is much easier than many might think it takes about 900 degrees F to use alumini a welding rod that 1 can use with a propane torch.or a rod called hts 2000 https://www.aluminumrepair.com/

ive been in the welding business for 40 years I know what im talking about.

Skilled people can solder aluminum easily. Some skilled folks can braze as well Unskilled people will melt holes in a tuned exhaust pipe/muffler. I’ve seen it happen.
