Ok, so recentley my rear brakes developed this odd problem. When the car has been parked all day and overnight in my garage (open garage) I get this grinding/scraping noise from the rear. It'll go away after I depress them a time or two. I just replaced the drums 4000 miles ago and I don't drive like a bat out of hell. It's especsially bad if the last time I drove it was in the rain or I washed it the night before. It's got 58K miles on it and I dont think the rear shoes have even been replaced. What could be the problem.

Sounds like a typical problem that most Focus's Have. First check your brake lines and try and lossen them up by pullin the line next to the drum and seeing if it loosens up and if you want the real solutions hopefully this will help.

If you disagree with that then try and pull your rear drums off or go to your garage and let them do it. Best way is to take the 4 BOLTS off in the back of the drums then they come off all together and can inspect everything you need.
