    Hi guy ive just been wondering what the problem with my 1.3 copen could be, when I reverse and break it makes a horrible noise, sorta like a screech or a grind. Either way if you have any mechanical sympathy you will cringe, all help is most appreciated

    Either poorly adjust drums or worn front pads

    When I bought the car only a few months ago, everything was fine, its only recently. Plus when going forwards and breaking there is no noise at all.

    Just check your brakes, how hard can it be? It is pretty much the only component that might pose a problem :D

    Sounds like the drum brakes in the rear - my money is one the shoes having worn

    I would guess at rear shoes also. Particularly as the shoes will tend to pick up in one direction and not the other when worn.
