Hi guys

my car's developed a knocking noise. It only happens when im reversing say down an incline, more so rolling backwards and hit the brakes. Theres this metallic sounding knocking noise that sounds just once. The faster the cars rolling back the louder it is. Doesnt happen all the time though

anyone experience this?

sounds to me like the pads could be moving around inside the caliper? is that possible?

Sam:

Yes... I would say it is the pads in your calipers making that noise!

cheers,

I had this issue in reverse and when moving the car after it had sat overnight. NISSAN did the TSB and no problem since (8K miles ago)

I had the same problem it was the rear axles.

Just take the car to the dealer and they will fix it!

The pull out the axles, clean and grease them and put them back.

Voila, Robert's your father's brother.

As always

unless you had your wheels balanced and alligned recently, which i highly doubt since your car is still new, it could be the bolt-on balancing weights on your wheels that are making those noises. i had a similar problem a while back and these weights cause my wheels to create this knocking effect that your experiencing at the moment. i hope this helps. you might want to check your mags out just as a precaution.

cheers

oops...correction on the bolt-on weights...they actually hammer it on the wheels to fastened it. excuse my terminology there.
