Squealing Alfa 147 tail gate at speed

When my 147 reaches a cruising speed of say 60 - 70 mph from the tail gate area I have started getting a pretty shrill but intermiittent squealing noise.

It's very nearly but not quite constant, at lower speeds it disappears... I need a more permanent solution than Led Zeppelin at Vol. 11 !

Not a GT

Your rear brakes are binding most probably. Give the pads & calipers a good clean and Coppaslip where they touch.
