Hi I have a 2012 S-Max 2.2 Diesel.  Since I have owned it the rear brakes have made a squeeling noise when reversing.  At the service in March the garage agreed after some debate to deglaze them (Not normally covered under waranty).  The noise has now returned.  Anyone know of folks who have had the same issue.  I read that this can be an issue with some focus models.  Also I had a 2008 S-Max previously and never experienced this issue


Thanks Supersons

Cant recall if your car has disk or drums, but it sounds like either word disk pads / shoe, sticking piston or shoes.
