Drive back to see film about parking (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

repel

'drive back' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'film about parking' is the wordplay.
'film' becomes 'reel' (reel is a kind of film).
'about' is an insertion indicator.
'parking' becomes 'p' (abbreviation on road signs).
'reel' placed around 'p' is 'REPEL'.

'to see' is the link.

(Other definitions for repel that I've seen before include "Drive or force back" , "Drive away like leper" , "Nauseate" , "Turn away" , "may turn your stomach" .)

I've seen this clue in The Daily Express and The Mirror.
