I have noticed a knocking noise from the rear of the car when first reversing the car in the morning. It is noticible inside the car but not so outside.
Has anyone else experienced this? It is not the drive axel issue, i have had that and it was sorted out.

Could it be related to the parking brake ? Does it happen also if you didnt apply the parking brake the day before ?

I have the foot operated brake - always applied when parked. It could be the brakes binding after being left overnight possibly?

This is what I was thinking. I have the electronic parking brake, but when I have it on over night in wet conditions, then unlock it - then I often hear a banging noise as soon as the car starts to move. Apparently the brake pads stick to the discs/drums (whatever the parking brake uses ))).
