    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

    doubt its anything to worry about though

    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.
