    Whilst backing on a tight spot I heard the dreaded scraping sound. On inspection found that the LHS rear panel had a large scrape from the acrylic paint on the post. I found I could scrape all of it off with a thumb nail and water. That leaves only a dint to pull out with a suction cap. Lucky.

    Eek. Have you set your mirrors to tilt and move inward when you are in reverse?

    Possibly the worst sound any car owner can hear. I feel your pain.
