Question about 2004 Honda Accord
When the car is in reverse and the brakes are applied it makes a loud groaning sound. This same sound does not occur when the car is in drive and the brakes are applied.
I believe you have drum brakes on the back. Not sure. If so, it probably is the automatic adjuster is frozen. This comes into play when you go backwards and apply the brakes. It is used so that the emergency brake is in proper alignment, that is, it only takes a few clicks before the emergency brakes start being applied. If there were no adjuster, as the brakes go old, you would lose the emergency brakes entirely.

SOURCE: when backing up and sometimes
Your rear brake pads are most likely worn to the wear indicator which can make a high pitch squealing noise. It is very common that it will squeal when backing up, but not when applying the brakes. 50,000 miles is about the average life for rear brake pads on your car.

The high pitched whine in reverse sounds normal for a honda. Ever honda I have had makes a similar noise while in reverse. The spinning, scraping noise in drive is not normal. You might want to see a mechanic about that.

had the same thing happen. sorry i dont know the terminology here, but i pulled off the wheel, turned out the thinish metal plating on the wheel assembly was rubbing against the disk. i simply straightened it out to fix the prob.
