    We just purchased our 2008 Escape and we have noise coming from the rear when braking. The dealer applied some lubricant that is supposed to fix the problem, but it has not helped. We have less than 1,000 miles on the car.

To be honest, check if you have a rock or two in the wheel well.... that will cause a clunking sound when u start to accelerat, and go to stop- your tires go slow enough for the rocks to start tumbling....check, that might be it

Parts have come loose in that brake area. Pull it apart and they will fall out. More than likely the hand brake mechanism has slipped out of place.

Everytime i use the brakes on my 2000 sunfire i here a loud knocking noise in the rear.


you probably have a shoe that has become dislodged from it's anchor point, you need to remove the wheels and pop the drums off to visually inspect the brakes.

I just replaced the rear brakes on my 1998 camry.I used toyota shoes and had the drums turned .now i have a clunk clunk noise when brakes are applied. help!


Did you use exchange shoes, and were they oversize? The shoes must be adjusted very close to the drum to prevent this lock-on from happening, maintain a high brake pedal, and reduce wear. If the adjusters won't bring the shoes out to lock the wheel when adjusting, they are too small.

A word about adjusting drum brakes...Move the adjuster so that each shoe locks the wheel, then back off till you can turn it more or less freely.You may have to have someone stab the pedal for you the center the shoes as they are backed off. You should hear and feel the drag of the shoes. Do this for all shoes on both wheels.

Drum brakes causing intermittent grinding noise


Sounds like one of the springs that hold the rear brakes in place broke. Jack her up, pop off the tire, remove the drum and take a look. If you need to see what a good one looks like, look on the other side.

This is not a very common problem, but I saw it last year on a 69 chevelle.

Good Luck and thanks 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.

Rear brake grinding noise when pressing on brakes


The grinding noise in the rear brake drum means that brake shoes are warn out and the metal part of the shoe is touching the drum. You need to replace it asap as it will damage the inner part of the drum and than replacing shoes will not help without skimming or replacing the drum.

Scraping noise from ther rear


Make sure the parking brake cables are away from the rear tires on the inside.And also if you check everything out in the rear brake department and everything checks out,look at the inner part of the drum and make sure your backing plates are bent into the drums.Best way to test this is to jack up rear tires and turn each one to pin point to where the sound is coming from..Your rear u-joints could also be making the noise to.But check the rear drums over once more to rule that stuff out and jacking up the rear and spinning both sides to narrow your search down...GOOD LUCK..
