This is your VW Jetta? - of so - very common on the A3's for the outer skin to rust loose and you can peel it off with a little twisting and pulling. You can get another year or so out of the muffler before the rust starts eating a hole on the inner cover. With the outer cover gone the muffler still does not leak. The inner cover is much thicker than the outer cover, but it is not galvanized so about a year in parts of the country that use salt on the roads is about right. I've had this several times. The loose outercover rattles against the underside of the car and sounds bad, until you peel it off.
