New exhaust fitted last week

The smell of new mufflers and exhaust piping has just gone.

But there is a noise whenever I start the car cold and go into reverse.

It sounds like a creaking old door noise

Any ideas?

It's not your handbrake/rear brakes binding a little on first start up then into reverse???even moisture on the brake discs/pads can make a similar noise.
