I have a 2001 Accent GSI and everytime I take it out in the wet, after leaving the car sit for a little, the rear brakes grind for a while then it stops. It almost sounds like the rear brakes are shot. I only have 22000 KM on it. Could they already be gone?

Its rust that forms on the clean metal surface inside the drum. My beater Subaru does this also, no big deal, it happens.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Either rust from rain or dirt is getting caught up in there. I know the rotors on the front rust a bit after it rains then comes off after you drive and stop. But these are rear drums, which are covered. Have that checked out. Water or dirt may be getting in there when its not suppose to

As far as I know, it's pretty normalthat drum brakes make noises when wet, or even when there is extreme moisture. But it should go away after two or three long brakes.
If it is persistent, have them looked, normally they apply air pressure, clean the brake pad with sand paper and that's it.

Interesting. My Elantra has never done that. However, my jeep does that upon start up after it rained out. Then again, its on the original rear drums and pads with 125,000 miles on them, so I would expect it to do that being that they have even lasted this long.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Are you sure you don't brake with front wheels only? <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>
That's one hell of a long interval for rear brake pads.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

eventhough the rear drums are sealed, they are not air tight. Humidity does get in which rusts the inner drum. After a few braking the rust will be polished off and things will be back to normal.
