    I'm getting a persistent squeak from the driver side rear brake upon release of the brake pedal.
    The brakes make no noise, simply a squeak on release only.
    Any idea's ?

    Disc or Drum, Either way i would lube up all the moving parts and contact points first easy and cheap fix

    when the brakes make noise when the pedal is NOT depressed then the pad wear indicators are causing the issue. soon these indicator clips will fall off and the noise will go away

    Take off the DRUM and lube the backing plate lightly where the SHOE moves against it.
