    Hi everyone just wondered whether anyone has any idea on this noise I heard when reversing my 2006 SB up my drive (slight incline ) , it sounds like a rubbing noise it happens only when I reverse up my drive as its a slope, when reversing on flat ground there is no sound, when it happens I was not steering or on the brakes.

    Any help would be appreciated as I havent a clue what it can be, had a look underneath and all seems well.



    cheers

    Is the car standard? My ARBs foul in reverse sometimes, just get twisted onto something behind them (thick bars and very slim clearance). Same thing used to happen when putting lock on in reverse on my 8L too.
