Rear brake squeal when backing up solved
Squeal from rear brakes when backing up, especially while turning...
- Parking brake scissors plates corrossion welded, everything corroded up and springs almost gone from heat of long term dragging brake - Backing plate w/ ALL parts $85, stripped new plate for swap out of everything - very painless, adjuster had welded tight also.
- Scissors lever - cable attach arm has a rubber boot , its a sloppy fit at best and on mine it had warped 'up' on inside lower flange and allowed rain & road salt spray to drench the innards - I silicone sealed the boots flange to better keep junk out of it - worth checking y'all...
99 F150 in service 4/2000 went 84,000 miles w/ zero maintanance on brakes, not bad IMO but its my own fault for not tearing it apart every two years and doing PM - so its $85 for PB kit and $45 for pads (so far!)
