    Coupe Problem

    i've noticed that when i reverse i get a sound coming from the rear right wheel. It sounds like when you blow across the top of a bottle of beer. I remember from a while back about some recalls. Is this the same thing or could it be something else.

    Its an 02, 2.2 Coupe SE2.

    Thanks People!

    Possibly sticky calipers - mine used to do this until I had a free modification done by the dealers. All they seems to do was replace the caliper slide pins but problemo solved.

    Give Vaux customer services a ring - 01582 427200 and have a chat with them . It's best if you can get their 'campaign number' before you confront the dealer as they will probably deny it!!!

    mine does it too.... big honking sound when you reverse and touch the brakes....


    took it to the dealer a while ago and they replaced the rear brake pads apparently, fixed the problem for a while but now it's back with a vengance
