front brakes mooing when reversing

i have a 2021 m235i gc UK spec and recently after a bit of a drive somewhere if i then reverse into say my drive way or a parking space there will be like a mooing noise and vibration from the front brakes, now i had booked the car into the local bmw dealer to check this over and they came back with the conclusion nothing was wrong as they couldnt identify the noise whilst it was with them as the noise wouldnt appear, any way long story short there was something to do with an engine mount need replacing so they did that and i had the car back yesterday and i had just been out in the car to get some lunch and what happens when i reversed the noise appears. someone please help me understand why this is happening.

I have awful whine from the car, not identified where itís coming from only when reversing. It is always when reversing at slow speed but it seems to do it sometimes without the brakes applied.

I also have the M235i gc and it pretty much done it since new but getting worse.

You know I noticed a terrible sound when reversing out of the garage. I'm not pressing the gas petal, I'm just easing up on the brake. Kind of sounds like a grinding sand paper sound.

I've have had the exact same experience on my M235i GC. I had it looked at towards the beginning of this year. Nothing out of the "ordinary" was found, I just live with it for the time being, not ideal though.

It only happens when reversing and the steering wheel is fully locked to the left.

Keep us posted if there's any resolution found.

Same here. Every once in a while i hear that noise on reverse and wheel locked left. Doesn't seem to damage any brake parts or suspension yet but it does sound like that...

I had exactly the same, after the BMW dealer replaced the pads and greased them it was okay again.

I think a visit to the dealers is needed is the worse itís ever been. I managed to capture it tonight

That's awful and wrong, my car doesn't make that noise at all. Sounds a tad like there's no copper grease behind the pads or the shims are missing...
