    Recently when backing up in reverse at slow speeds the brakes scream. This is louder than any other squeal I've heard on any vehicle. It happens when the brake pedal is pressed from about 1/4 to 1/2 of the way down.

    Took it to my local shop and they said it needed cleaning and they cleaned them with no change in brake squealing.

    Does anybody know what the problem is or have a similar issue?
    If so what can I do to fix it?

    Seriously, Welcome Rob. I'd check to be sure the e-brake cable isn't too tight. Then I'd start looking at the calipers and what the space 'tween caliper and pad looks like. How new/old are the pads and rotors?

    I had this problem when my rear shoes were replaced for the first time. Lived with it for 5 years and considered the squeal a form of reverse warning system.

    Rear axle seals leaked and had to get another set of new shoes and the problem is gone. Must be the type of shoes? Not of shoes type as the shop did all the work.

    Do your axle seals and bearings and brake shoes all at the same time. Thats how they did it for me.
