I've been hearing clicking noises in my rear drum brakes and plan to take it into Middas to have them look at it. in Lansing at GAP03, i had to replace them so they are pretty new (about 7 months), and they have a lifetime warrenty. so i'll be going there thursday hopefully.

but searching the net, i came across this site that has alot of troubleshooting tips (conditions, causes, remedy). pretty good page to start out at if you are experiencing any type of brake problem.

sounds like the guy did not put grease where the brake shoe rests on the backing plate.

i'm getting that clicking, creaking and popping noise from my front left. the tech said my caliper needed to be serviced. i'll have it done along with that hazzard switch thingy.
