I also heard this noise once while reversing the car. I hope it does not repeat again.

I picked up my brand new troc in the middle of September, it is a 70 plate and I've only had it 8weeks. Last week I noticed a loud growing noise when reversing, it sound like a boat horn! Today I took it into a vw garage, they have phoned me to say they have found out it's the front pads and they are changing them. I'm just a bit confused it's the front pads, as it sound like it was coming from the back and when reversing. Has anyone had the same problem?

Brake noise from the rear when reversing (or mooing as it became known) was a fairly common fault on earlier cars and was usually resolved by replacing the rear brake pads and sometime also the discs. Mention this to the service dept. but it may just be a slip of the tongue.

Mine has it (MY20) and I'll be asking for them to be replaced at service number 1.

Just taken my Car for it's first service, mentioned about the mooing noise while reversing and they knew exactly what I was talking about. Changed the rear brake pads under warranty.

Glad your dealership were on the ball and honest. I mentioned it about my last T-Roc and was told "must be replicated in front of us" and of course it was a dry day so it didn't happen. Current T-Roc has the same issue (it's my opinion that they all do) and I'll bet at my first service they'll fight me on it again.

Hi Twist,

Mine did it 2 or 3 times when the car was a couple of months old but it hasn't done it since and the car is now 19 months old. Perhaps I've been lucky, although having poor hearing helps :lol:

Hopefully your volkswagen dealership can give you a replacement under warranty 🤞&#x1f937-2642;

Unfortunately my hearing is impecable - as, apparently, is everyone else around me when I'm parking given the looks I get as my car moans and groans its way into a bay...

Does it any time it's wet and I'm reversing slowly (applying brakes for control). It's horrendous. I swear I can feel the vibrations through the seat as well. It's quite unpleasant.

Well the only way you're going to overcome the problem is by going back to your dealer (while you're still in warranty) .. not sure if it was earlier in this thread or a previous one I said I'd had my rear shoes renewed. I told the dealer I'd read about the problem on line and that other dealers were doing the honourable thing and changing either rear brake pads and/or rear discs. They obviously wanted to look for themselves, don't know whether they experienced it or just looked on line but I got my new shoes!
;) :)

I have had my T-Roc R-Line 1.5 Tsi Evo for over ten months & I was getting the rear brake noise when applying brakes in reverse, car was booked in for inspection, dealer could not get the noise under test, but said there was another noise present and they fitted new brake pads. I have not been far in car due to Covid 19 lockdown, but I have to say the brakes seem to release easier when footbrake hold is in use, before I would have to give more revs to release the brake with a sudden surge, seems a lot smoother when pulling away and brakes release easier now. Hopefully fixed. I just wish they could cure the bunny hopping when mainly from cold start off.

Have you had any of the software updates applied that intend to fix the bunny hopping? Seems to sort it for some, not for others.

If you prove the noise by video they accept to change the rear pads. They are not using the factory fitted pads again. They order new version pads from Germany.

Same here, my car is same age too, although my hearing is excellent ! The noise happened a few embarrassing times and then disappeared after the rear brakes bedded in.

Pad to be replaced 5Q0698451J
Note J at the end instead of Q.

Indeed, persistence paid off. I took her in for a service today and in the "anything else" box I described the brakes issue once again. They've just emailed me to say pickup will be delayed as they're fitting the revised pads under warranty due to a recall/TPI.

No more mooing brakes for me!!
