My '11 does it too. Never done it yet but if you grind a blending angle to get rid of the right angle corner at the end of the shoe it will likely stop it, what I do on Focus cars that do that in ridiculous amounts. It stops it 100%. For reverse only you would grind bottom of front shoe and top of the rear one.

Just to add to the above advice, can you isolate the noise to the front or rear? Have the rear drums/shoes ever been replaced?

My brakes only squeak when I’m slowly backing out of my driveway, a parking space at the store,etc..and it sounds to me like it’s coming from the rear

On the glazing thing............................EVERY brake friction surface just about on the planet glazes some, it is partially needed to make them work.

One can also lube the touching friction points between the shoes and backing plates but it will commonly work only until enough brake dust pollutes the grease to then make it not lube correctly, that can be up to a year or less and then do it again. The first way you must remove the shoes to do it (not me of course, I worked that out too) but then the problem is gone through the entire life of that set of shoes. Those cars make the noise going in BOTH directions, people will hate you in slow roll traffic jams. Mine are dead quiet now even while using the exact same shoes that before made the whopping amount of noise.

Sorry if everyone else got confused as well but since my brakes only squeak when I’m in slow roll reverse and it sounds like it’s coming from the rear how would I fix the noise and now that Keith brought it up..how can I tell if they are glazed over

So now we are convinced the brake is smart enough to know which way it is turning........(the school are NOT making them any smarter!).......I for one have already explained the fix in post #2 (and even gave more in post #8 ), we can't understand them for you. I was avoiding the 500 page book on purpose, you seem to be able to only handle one idea at a time. Here you can't even get the one.

A hint: glazing has literally nothing to do with the issue at all, all it can do is slightly modify a problem which is already there, and designed in by the engineers.

The only person confused here is you. You just keep parroting the same thing over and over and completely missed what I said, or, made your situation worse by refusing to acknowledge it.

Fix the driver first.................then fixing the car becomes SO much easier.

amc49...Well excuse me for trying to get it straightened out!! I can’t help getting confused and I am by no means stupid(cause it seems to me that’s what you are implying) and yes I can only handle one at a time because of my ADD/ADHD! So you can just take what you just said and shove it where the fucking sun don’t shine

Poman I’ve had the car for 2 years and never had to do anything to it except for oil change and get new tires on it

Thank you, that went miles toward getting your car to be quiet. I expect most personal response to be childish once they think their feelings are hurt, they quickly could care less whether the car ever gets fixed at all.

Typical.

Why so often the driver needs fixing as bad as the car.

I'll leave you alone, but know that I would have that noise gone forever with 60 seconds work that cost nothing at all. You'll throw away more money on any other fix there. You need to decide whether getting the car fixed or maintaining your delicate ego is more important.

None of that fixed your car, and it didn't fix you either. I rejoice in the knowledge you are not MY child and therefore I do not have to worry about what happens when this big bad-ss planet collides with your belief structure, you are in for some extremely serious enlightenment.
