Rear brake noise

Recommended Posts

rear brake noise when backing up, best described as dying seal. not a grinding sound, rubbing, scrapping,squeal, but a LOUD howling noise. Noise is random, not due to wet brakes, rust, ETC, but only when backing up. Noise started after they did a new brake job. Been to dealership 6 times they are unable to do anything about it. No service bulletin available. anyone else have this problem? Had video but too large to post.

Not sure what type of rear brakes the Transits have on them. Are they disc or drum brakes ?

Drums on the Gen 1's and discs on the Gen 2's

This noise is usually just the upper shoes spring rubbing against the backing plate.  There is a special nickel based grease you can use behind where the spring touches the backing plate.  Not worth the effort, however.
