Question about 2001 Ford Focus
Hi, I had a squeaky noise coming from my back brake. I had the MOT done and they found out that the cylinder needed replacing and it was leaking. Since having it done it is worse. I have jet washed the brakes for brake dust but it is still like it. Any clues?
I have a 2001 Ford Focus ZTS and have a sqeaking rear brake problem, started at about 20,000. The ford dealer worked on it three times through 36,000 and each time squeaked 5,000 miles after they worked on it. I have but two sets of drums and pads on my self and get the same results. I am a mechinical engineer and you are going to have that problem as long as the forged steel drums are use.
Bad engineering move on Ford's part to save money.
I say sell the car.
