Ask a mechanic to give your calipers a good clean, and tell them to put some copper slip on the rear too.

This - for some reason - seems to stop squeaky brakes. It could be that a build up of brake dust is causing the caliper rails to "gum up" and not fully release, so your pads are still touching the disc.

You can also try "refacing" the pads, but finding a long, straight bit of (empty) road...accelerating up to...uhh...the speed limit, and then wedging your foot on the brake.

Best do this after the calipers have been looked at though, eh?

As for the rear wiper - it is supposed to activate when you stick the car in reverse, but only if the front wipers are going...this could either be a sensor issue or a software glitch.
