Question type: General

When I back-up and touch brake peddle their is a noise...not a squeaking sound or
noise but rather a deep rubbing sound ...and this sound only happens when it is cool to
cold outside tempeture...does not happen in the summer time...thinking it was a brake
problem.....had the brakes looked at twice by two different brake guys and they both
say the brakes are good, no problem .....Sincerely, Barking Dog

Have the brakes sanded off lightly with sand paper and have the drums/rotors turned on the rear.

The reason I say this is fords had the same problem cold or damp and turning the rotors/drums sanding shoes/pads was the fix.
