noisy rear disk brakes while going on revese

The Compasses that have rear disk brakes do have a problem as far as noise being generated while backing up especially in the morning. I talked to other owners I met at gas station. Simply replacing the pads might not eliminate the problem but the most effective method to eliminate this annoyance is to lube the brake mechainsms. Not the pads themselves but only the small areas that the pads make contact on the calipers. These are the areas where it slides and also the areas on the back of the pads.

Do not lube the areas where the pads make contact with the rotor or else you will lose your brakes.
