I suggest you look at the rear brake caliper mounting bolts.
Try the following test - ask a friend to stand by the car and listen close to
where the noise is coming from.
Start the car moving forward very gently, and brake to a stop. 2 to 3 mph
will do. Then drive it backwards and brake. If the carrier bolts are worn,
your friend (and perhaps even you) will hear a sharp "click" from the brakes.
