Brake noise – Nissan Versa

Why do my brakes make noise – Nissan Versa

Nissan has issued a service bulletin to address a brake noise problem on 2012-13 Versa sedans. The brake noise appears as a moaning, squeaking or squealing sound from the rear brakes when braking at slow speeds.

The noise is related to vehicles built before 1/14/13. Nissan states that the brake shoes are incompatible with the brake drums. A redesign shoe is now available (D4060-3VA0B) . The new shoes are made from a different friction material and are designed to work better with your existing drums.
