Screeching Noise When Reversing

4 posts in this topic

I get a very audible low-pitched noise when my S-Max is reversing - almost always when the brakes are applied when parking the vehicle.

Any idea what's causing it?

I'm not sure if it has got to do with the brake pads or discs because I don't get the same problem when the brakes are applied during normal forward driving.

Thanks for any feedback,

It could be the gearbox, I would take it to a dealer and get it looked at before the warranty expires! worst case scenario, its a new gearbox and you dont want to wait for it to fail altogether, the warranty may have expired already, or may be in sufficient time that they offer discounts on the repairs or good will gestures!
