Hi guys, I am having problems with my rear brakes and was wondering if anyone could help me out. I have a 2001 lx2.0 and everytime I back up and hit the breaks there is a horrible screeching sound that comes from the rear brakes. This only happens when I apply the brakes when the car is rolling back, other than that at all other times they make no sound at all. I believe I have drums in the rear if that might help. Thanks
mine do the same thing i got rear drum brakes and a 2000 dx 1.6. it does it everytime i come to a stop sometimes. i dont know what it is i have replaced the drums and the shoes and still does the same thing. next thing i am going to do is change the brake fluid out and maybe if that dont work put new wheel cylinders in it.
Any noises from your braking system is generally not good. Check the linings and if they look alright then take it into the dealership, since you are probably under warranty. Since it only makes the noise in reverse I would think your drums and shoes are probably fine. I'm not sure about the LX setup but most drum brakes use reverse movement to self adjust themselves so your adjustment system might be screwed up.
