Question about 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis
It is driving me crazy. Please provide solution:-)
If the whistling changes when applying brakes it is just your warning indicator letting you know that the pads are getting very thin.
You did not give a more detailed description so I hope this helps.

You said the brakes were replaced? The warning indicators go on the outside shoe, not on the inside. If the rear rotors were removed the emergency brakes are inside the back rotors. If you only had the rear rotors turned, you have dirt and a groove inside the rotor.
If the rotors are new, no problem with groove, but you need to adjust the emergency brake pads. Check your bill and see if the emergency brakes were replaced too. The shop should at least have adjusted them. They are suppose to be self-adjusting if you use the emergency brake, but the initial adjustment usually is done by the shop.
