Re: Brakes issue

Are you able to jack the car up yourself?Would try spinning the wheel slowly to see if the back plate is touching the drum ,,this will echo through the car as it picks up speed,,Was any noise present(that you noticed)before the brakes were touched ,It could be that there is a slight bit of rust still touching the brake shoe and as the drum warms up it is slightly expanding and touching and giving you brake squeal ,,does the squeal go at this speed if the brake pedal is lightly touched or is it constantly there?
