CR-V is making a strange noise while reversing

My 2004 Honda CR-V 2.0 auto has been making a strange noise while reversing. I do not know why this has been happening. Also when you brake there is a metallic grinding noise from the left wheel. Any ideas?

You've probably got some water in the rear diff. It's a common CR-V problem. See:

Low-down pull from refined chain cam engines. Walk-through cabin on CVT auto models. Large boot can be increased by sliding the rear seats forward. Lasting very well.
