Re: Noise when braking on reverse gear only ! ?

It's just the brake pads moving slightly in the retaining bracket.
As you say, it mostly happens when you press the brake after reversing.

It might also do it first time you brake when going forwards after your reverse braking.

If the brakes feel fine other than the noise, give it some time and see if it goes away.

If the noise remains and is too annoying-

If the bracket has worn or they cleaned it up aggressively when doing the pads, you'd have to find replacement brackets.
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.
