Re: Noise when braking on reverse gear only ! ?

If the garage have checked and given it the all clear-

It sounds like the metal backing plates of the brake pads are a little bit smaller than they should be...or...the caliper bracket has worn a little bit.

Another set of brake pads from a different manufacturer may cure it.

If you wait a month or two, you might find the noise goes away on it's own.

As the brake pad wears, dust will fill the gaps between the pad and retaining bracket.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
