Loud Screeching Noise in Reverse Only...What is it??
Hi: I have a 2001 B5 GLX. Last night I noticed that the brakes screech in reverse only. Metal on metal screeching noise...and in reverse only. the brakes may have been making this noise for longer, but I only noticed it last night. I believe it's coming from one of the front wheels, but I'm not sure. I haven't had enough time to check it out yet. I've never had any problems with the brakes before and have done no work to them in the year I've owned the vehicle. The brakes appear to be operating normally too.
Any ideas what might be causing this? If the pads were worn, wouldn't I be getting the noise in forward and reverse? I drive over road construction everyday, so maybe there is some grit in there. But, again, wouldn't the noise happen in forward and reverse? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
