Brake Drum Issues

Hey everybody

I'm new to this forum although I am a member of a couple of others.

I'm sorry to be so forward but I am having trouble with my rear brake drums (I think) it's either the drums or the rear suspension. I have a Mk2 Punto on an '03 plate so one of the last of the old design before they brought out the Mk3.

Upon braking at any junction, they sqeak as though you are in a bed doing the naughty - has anyone else experienced this? I have got it booked in to my local dealer next week to have a look - is it a suspension problem as I know people have had problems or is it the brake drums?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Re: Brake Drum Issues

Hey Greg, thanks for your quick response. Is that at a main dealer?
