Hello.
New to Subaru and this forum.
I purchased 2018 Outback 3.6R last September.
Less than a month and 1000 miles, I started hearing clicking noise (randomly) when I back up or move forward slowly.
metal to metal sound and very cyclical. I thought it was pad slipping but it should only do it once or twice "click" not continuously at low speed.
I have ~2000 miles and ~6 weeks old car. just highway miles. I can still see my machine marks on my all rotors.
no off-road and no modification.

I uploaded 11 seconds video on youtube. this webpage doesn' let me attach a video nor link.
title "18 Outback 3.6R weird clicking noise from rear"

I visited a local dealer but I did not like their answers (1st time: heat shield touching something. they fixed that. 2nd time: rock in a tire. removed the rock.)
I hope I can get some answer from forum members.
Thank you in advance.

update

just wanted to update my post.
I visited another local dealer and they found the cause or at least where it comes from within 30 minutes.
The metal to metal noise comes from driveshaft near the transfer case. A technician rotate rear tire by hand and it started making the noise I described.
Seems like it comes inside of the shaft. I am not sure if that makes any sense.
I'll update more once I get my car back.
