Question about 2006 Pontiac G5
I have a 2005 Pontiac Pursuit (identical to the G5) and am having trouble with the rear passenger drum brake. The brake squeals when driving slowly and if the parking brake is gently applied, the noise goes away. I had it in the shop and they put new brake shoes on and adjusting everything. I didn't have any problems for a few days, then the squeal came back.
So.... I took it back again and they replace the shoes again (stating that they were defective and under warranty) and adjusted everything.
Again, the car worked great for about 4 days and then yesterday the brake is screaming again.
It's almost like the brake is over-self-tightening over time?
Any ideas on what might cause this and suggestions on getting it fixed?
Type of brake shoes there using, the more metallic compound on the shoe will make them Squeal and just takes time for the brake shoes and drums to wear there self to a point where they will not squeal any more. The high Metallic brake shoes will last longer but make more noise, I did a break up grade on my Jimmy with ceramic brake pads and vented rotors. At first before there were broken in, stopping distance was bad and brakes was loud, but now it's like dropping an anchor LOL. Keep me posted and give it a few miles of stop and go traffic.
