'Creaking' sound when selecting reverse.....


Recommended Posts



I've an 05 reg 2.0 v6 Se Auto and when I select reverse there's a creaking sound, almost as if the brakes are still very lightly engaged, or there's some resistance against the wheel. It sounds to be coming from the rear but it's hard to tell. It happens whether I've used the hand brake or not and seemingly regardless of weather (wet, hot, cold or dry). Once moving the sound goes, and there's no hint of noise in any forward gears. the gearbox is very smooth, including the selecting of reverse. Any ideas? Is it old age or maybe some lubrication needed on bushes or similar?
