2003 yamaha v star 650 classic rear brake noise.

I've had this bike for a while. The rear brakes started making noise like the shoes were worn. Removed rear tire and hub. The shoes still had lining on them but I replaced them anyway. The new shoes make the same noise. It's like when you apply the brakes the shoes are rubbing on the side when they expand to make contact with the drum.

Check the wheel bearings
it indicates that the hub is moving sideways on the axle allowing the side of the shoe to contact the inside side of the drum thereby making the noise

Brake peddle is low,

Pedal, not peddle. First make sure reservoir is full at the brake master cylinder. Then check your brake pads (for disc brakes) and/or brake shoes (for drum brakes). When the pads or shoes are very worn down, you will get a low pedal. If you have disc brakes on the front and drums on the rear wheels, first try just replacing the front brake pads. If you get a good pedal after the front is done, many people tend to let the rear brake shoes go unless they are making noise. These systems are designed to put most of the braking force on the front discs, so the rear shoes do not need changing as often.

When i first start driving my car, the brakes make a very loud grinding noise. if i press on the brake the hesitate, and push back. this only occurs for a while then the ABS light turns on and the work...

The loud grinding noise may be due to worn pads or brake shoes. I suggest you have all brakes on the vehicle inspected for worn pads, shoes, and possibly worn rotors. The ABS light may indicate uneven brake functioning, so for safty sake, have the brake system checked out.

Clicking noise when applying the brakes on a 2002 cadillac seville

If there isn't a high pitch squeel when applying breaks, then your pads/shoes are worn down to the rivits. If in the rear, could be defective hardware in the brake drum/brake assembly.

Scraping sound coming from right rear. could this be caused by faulty fuel pump

A scraping sound is more likely to be worn brake pads. The sound is an indication that very soon, there will be metal shoe to disc / drum contact. When this happens, the cost of the brake work can increase substantially. The parking brake makes use of the rear brake disk / drum and can also be the source for this noise.

Have the brakes inspected at once to lower the cost of the work if warranted. The stopping distance will increase slightly if the rear brakes have work out (the vast majority of braking needed to stop a vehicle is performed by the front brakes). The parking brake my not "hold" the vehicle if worn out.

It is also possible that while inspectimng the brakes that the service provider may be able to tell you the problem (if not brakes) during a road test or inspection.

I hope this helps & good luck!

When appling brakes rear end of car makes noise and seems to pull rear end down

Your rear brakes need to be addressed, it could be proportionate valve at your master cylinder or your brake shoe are in to tight from a missed adjusted parking brake cable.
Good luck and hope it's a simple parking brake cable adjustment or brake shoe replacement. Note that a worn out brake shoe will cause this also and you may have to replace the brake drums if it's also past it's wear marks.
Thank you for using Fixya

Rear drum brake noise on my 2003 ford focus. Just as I come to a stop the rear brakes make an embarising load noise. How can I fix this problem?

either the brakes need to be replaced or there is alot of junk built up inside. Either way rear drums need to be taken off, cleaned and shoes inspected for wear.
