Rear Break squeak

Everytime I let off of the brake pedal I hear a very annoying squeaking noise coming from the rear brakes. Has anyone else had this problem? I have asked 2 different dealerships and both say its "normal" and its the design of the brakes. Any ideas?

Squeeky brakes are sometimes just because of the metallic pads or oxidation on the discs themelves.

Anything significantly loud, pulling to one side or shuttering should be checked straight away. In some cases a visual check can be made as you can see the discs yourself.

Some shops will check them for free if you do some investigating (i.e. in the hopes if you do need servicing they will get your business)

From what Ive witnessed so far, it works like this.

If your vehicle is under 36,000 miles:
Any and all noises, broken or missing parts, small fires, leaks, or mythological creatures inhabiting your vehicle are perfectly normal and are just part of the "design."

If your vehicle is over 36,000 miles:
Any of the above are serious issues which require immediate service action to avoid endangering and possibly killing you and your entire family and will cost no less than $1,000 per occurence. Unless said issue is related to drivetrain, in which case it is perfectly normal and just a part of the "design."

When I brake hard (rarely) my rears squeak, but I think its because the rears don't get used much and rust & dust accumulate in there . . . then when they're really firmly contacted, Squeeek! That's an appropriate noise for a vehicle named Ignatz, isn't it?

My handbrake (drum in hat, rear main brakes are the disc portion) squeaks a bit if I drag it at low speed.
I had a warrany problem with a recurring stuck parking brake cable last year (there was water freezing in a cable). I cooked my parking brake shoes as a result of it being partially stuck. I recall having a squeaking problem at the time. Ultimately I ended up having most of it replaced under warranty.

My rear brakes have squeaked from day one just before coming to a stop.

I am not worried about it unless I feel the brakes arn't working or the noice changes to a vibration.

I have drum brakes and it only happens when I let off the brakes from a dead stop and its not the pedal itself. I had someone press the brake and it is coming from the rear drums for sure.

rear drum brakes huh? well then...

1- Remove drum and clean drum interior & shoes
2- Sand the shoes slightly using sandpaper, 150 steel grain
3- Sand the interior of the drum lining in circular motion to remove any linear scuffs caused by dirt and normal wear and tear. This is a common problem with drum brakes that cause squealing and knocking.
4- The shoes are mounted on steel plates. And these steel plates are set tight against the steel backing plate. And when you have steel rubbing on steel, you get squealing. You need to put a dab of lubricant where the steel touches.


It always makes me laugh when mecanics say they cant do a thing about squealing brakes

What they mean is that they won't guarantee that the brakes won't squeak again after they fix them.

Thumbs up Inspection scheduled

I will be inspecting the rear brakes this weekend and will post pics if I find anything out of the ordinary. Thank you all for your help. Hopefully it just needs a little cleaning or greasing.

for "greasing" between the steel parts, take a look at some anti-seize compound...its a thick grey paste that holds up nice to friction.
