mine were doing it too, even with new brakes... even after new calipers, rotors, a new clip, etc... do you notice that it's even worse when it's wet??? I don't know if the e-brake affects the front at all, but ever since I screwed around doing some e-brake turns and stuff, I have yet to hear mine... it coulda been coincidence, or I may have not noticed that it stopped sooner, but I haven't heard mine in awhile.... and I did nothing to change it!

Look at that! a tech question, and I may have been helpful! I guess there's a first for everything!

But back on track... keep us posted. You might wanna see if that cable is too tight or something, cause I think that's what happened with mine.

If they changed the e-brake, it could be too tight... I think that's what happened with mine. If they didn't, maybe there is a problem with it.. regardless, get it done, cause it's a lot of fun to go around e-braking in the snow! As for the handicap zones... I've only parked in them once or twice, although my car came with a valid handicap thing until Nov. 2007! LOL! That's the benefit of buying a car from an older lady who never plans to drive again! I didn't notice the sign untill 2 months after I bought the car! hahaha! It could come in handy for Christmas... but I have too much of a conscious. DAMN IT! That $350 is pretty steep though..... I'd wait till u see someone else parked illegally in one, then put it in their window... I know a friend who frequently does it with parking tickets... most people are too stupid to read the plate # on the ticket!

That's crazy! In Canada they just take your license away if you don't pay, and then u get a bit bigger fine, and the fee to reinstate your license! U can go nearly 1 year w/o paying (cause u gotta get the sticker renewed yearly).
