Re: Crunching and scraping from rear brakes.

Sounds like one or more of the brake shoe linings have come adrift - not an uncommon problem. Hopefully the drum hasn't been affected. I suggest you get it seen to ASAP as they are known to seize and the only way home is on the back of a truck.

I have seen brake shoes inspected and the lining come adrift a week or so later.
