    Strange noise when reversing

    Hi guy was really wondering if anyone else has or knows of this but when I reverse my car you can hear a slight whine or rubbing noise ( metal on metal kinda thing ), I've had this noise for a while but starting to wonder if this is something else I need to add to my list of on going problems to try and sort out.

    thanks simon

    I used to have this when reversing at low speeds. never found out what it was but it went away after a while

    doubt its anything to worry about though
    Word!!!

    My A3/Martys Golf would smash that, and this guys £7000 GT9743 supercharged love machine.

    It's like the sound of wind going through a gap and making that kind of noise, I'm not worried but was wondering if it was a sticky brake caliper

    I have the same also. When on full lock it's worse I find, almost feels like the brakes are on.
