Question about 2005 Nissan Altima
When the car is cold go to drive off i hear squeeking noise at the rear wheels
As you apply your car brakes, your brake pads/shoes wear against the brake rotors/drums. Rear brakes usually have brake drums. As your brake shoe linings wear (as would be the case for your car), the brake linings from the brake shoes have worn down to metal and they wear into the metal of your brake drums. After you park the car at night, the natural moisture in the air facilitates an oxidation (rusting) process along your brake drums. When you get in your car and take off in the morning, you have a light layer of rust that gets scraped off by your worn brake shoes. This is what is causing that annoying noise you hear in the morning (or after the car has been parked for hours). Simply put, you need a rear brake job. They will also check your front brakes and can let you know how much life you have left up front. If you continue to drive around like this, you'll end up ruining your rear brake drums and this will quickly become more expensive. When you have a rear brake drum job completed, they will likely "turn" your rear brake drums - which means they will put the drums on a mechanical lathe that will scrape any uneven surface into one congruous even surface.
