So im driving.. and i noticed that when i drive slow (40kmph-60kmph) i can hear a noise that goes "ch...ch...ch..ch...ch" coming from the rear right wheel.. sounds like theres something near the break.

When i get really slow to stopping (round 10kmph) i hear a screech well not too loud but loud enough to hear... so just wondering if anyone here new?

Most likely handbrake is on a little.

Or that right side needs an adjustment because its not fully releasing.

sounds like someone has adjusted the cable up too much instead of adjusting the shoes themselves....

1. Raise the vehicle and suitably support.
2. Remove rear wheel.
3. Remove service disc brake caliper from the mounting plate.
4. Remove brake rotor by slowly turning and pulling...
5. Disconnect parking brake cable from the operating lever at the parking brake.
6. Using a vernier caliper, measure shoe assembly
7. Adjust shoe diameter to 189.6-189.8 mm by
turning the adjuster nut clockwise to increase
diameter.
8. Inspect brake rotor for wear and damage. Discard
worn or damaged brake rotors.
9. Install brake rotor.
10. Install service disc brake caliper and torque
11. Install rear wheel.
12. Connect parking brake cable to the operating lever.
13. Repeat 2 to 12 for the opposite side
14. Adjust the parking brake cable in accordance with the procedure described in this section.


1. Adjust the parking brake shoes
2. Fully release the park brake lever. Re-apply lever
3. Tighten cable adjuster nut (under vehicle) until minimum drag is first felt on the rear wheels
rotating wheels by hand.
4. Apply the lever a further 3 clicks.
5. Check that the rear wheels cannot be rotated by hand.
6. Fully release the park brake lever and check rear wheels are free to turn by hand.
7. Check operating levers at park brake are in the ‘OFF’ position and that there is minimum clearance only between levers and cable eye.
8. Check torque on p/clip tube mounting hardware.
9. Check P/B warning light operates by first click.
10. Check P/B returns to floor of it’s own when in OFF position.
