While driving through deep or blowing snow/water, moisture may enter the rear brake drums, causing rust to develop on the rear brake drum and shoe friction surfaces. Over time, repeated (and sometimes infrequent) exposure to the snow can lead to temporary freezing of the rear brake linings to the drums. A revised brake drum and brake drum backing plate is available.
