RF Wheel squeak in reverse?

Ive got an 07 Special Edition, and after owning it a few weeks, it has a squeak coming from the right front wheel area, but only when Im backing up? it doesnt do it going forward,, I took the wheel off, and the brakes look to be maybe a little less than half pads left, and there was some dirt and cobweb looking stuff around the caliper.. I spun it by hand both directions, but it never made a sound, but felt smooth while turning. Could it be the axle bearing? Brakes? Im new to Rhinos and dont know what it might be,, any help is appreciated,, this squeak is annoying.

Haha - I did a search just now for 'wheel squeak in reverse' and found this thread.

Mine is a 'new to me' 07 660 - does the exact same thing! I guess mine is not unique afterall.

Mine was doing the same thing I pulled the CV apart cleaned and regreased, and then I changed the wheel bearings. Not sure which it was but it no longer squeeks. It was only doing it when I turned, but it was driving me crazy.
