LOUD Whining noise in reverse

my friends 04 base auto makes an extremely loud whining noise when she is going in reverse but reverse only. I know there is the usual whine you get in reverse but this is totally different. shes taking it in on monday but im just seeing if anyone might know whats going on. thanks

Try draining the tans fluid out to check for any metal peices. use a special fuller deal (its a paper like fullen with a screen at the bottom to catch the tiny metal pieces) and if there are peices then maybe take it in. other than that i really dont know man sorry.

reverse gears are square cut not bevel cit almost all cars do it/
dude, you gotta read the post. Its not the normal reverse whine, it sounds more like a belt whine/moan (not squealing) but it is coming from the rear.

why would it only do it in reverse and no other time?

because the wear indicators are only hitting the rotors when you are in revervse. Not sure why it happens, but we get that complaint alot. "Whine noise when in reverse"

It usually means that rear brakes are low.
