There probably right, the brakes probably look fine. High humidity causes a lot of brake squeak noises. It's probably not hurting anything, other than your annoyance. I would replace them with a very good quality part. Check all the hardware too. Make sure the rotors/drums have a good finish on them.
My 92 Buick Century Wagon just had the following work done on it: both wheel bearings, left front brake hose, left front caliper, clean/adjust rear brakes, remove/install right rear wheel cylinder,...
rear brakes cant get drum off
wheel cylinder leaked, need to replace shoes,picture please.
The drivers side strut blew and sprayed fluid all over the brakes. Now the rear drivers side brake is locked up. Any advice as to what the problem might be?
are the brakes on the 94 buick century drum brakes or do they have the brake shoes and pads that can be changed out by myself.
