if the noise is rotational, that is, if you hear one or two "clunks" for every rotatation of the tire as you back up then the chances are you have a worn or broken constant velocity joint on your right front axle.if the noise only happens in reverse and it is rotational then it would be the inner c-v joint.if the noise is intermittant and doesn't happen all time and the noise is random as opposed to rotational, look at the exhaust system to be the cause of the noise. you may have a broken motor mount that allows the engine to move when under torque in reverse and when the engine moves the exhaust pipes move with it. they may be hitting the undercarriage causing the noise.the exhaust system and broken motor mount is much much more likely than a bad c-v joint.those are the two most likely causeshope that helps
