Question about 2000 Ford Focus
I was once told that the squeeling comes form the edges of the brakle pads vibrating when you stop. To fix it, remove the drum and sand off the edges of the brake pad. If you want to get serious, taper the edges of the pads with a grinder. Some Brake pads and shoes come tapered right out of the box. Be conservative only remove a little bit of material.

I just got off the phone with a ford dealer and I was told they are aware of the problem and will fix it for free if you take it in before the 3 year 36 thous standard warrentee but will not fix it for free even if extended warrentee after the 36,000.
My 2006 started squealing at 35,000 but because I waited till after the 36,000 it will not be covered for free.
