Unacceptable Brake noise when reversing

Post by Dee Bee » Tue Feb 12, 2019 11:40 am

I have a 12 month old T-Roc 1.5 SEL with 18" wheels. Often when I am reversing and applying the brakes there is loud screeching noise coming from what I believe is the rear brakes. Have other people had the same problem and what is the solution? My local VW dealer cannot fix it?

Mine once made a noise when I reversed off the drive. I didn't worry about it. I mostly drive forwards and it makes no noises going in that direction.

Yes I get this daily when reversing off the drive. Once moving forwards no issue. Coupled with the kangarooing the car is absolutely rubbish until you get it up to 15mph and it all warms up and sorts itself out. It’s the type of thing I’d expect from a 10 year old car I’d paid a grand for, not a brand new VW costing over £20K
