The offside rear brake squeaks when driving but if the pedal is lightly pressed, not actually braking, the noise stops. Any suggestions, please.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check both front/rear caliper pistons sounds like one side is starting to jam up (stick)

When you touch ther brake pedal no matter how lightly it pushes fluid down the lines and against brake pads. If you are sure it is the rear it could be a wheel bearing. But I would check the pads first.
