the past couple mornings i have been getting a popping noise when i back out of my driveway. it pops in 4 foot increments. i think it has something to do with the emergency brake freezing up. it has been raining here for 2 days straight and freezing overnight.

anyone else experence this?

any thoughts?

something stuck in your tires? just a guess. 4 ft seems like a full tire rotation to me.

yes, just in reverse and its not a rock in my tire. sounds like binding then breaking free

why would it make a noise in the morning and not in the afternoon or any other time? because it settles?

im pretty sure they are not rubbing. btw, no popping this morning. it was above freezing.

i remember my dodge dakota's emergency brake freezing and i couldnt move forward or reverse. its a pretty common thing. water gets in the braking system, freezes overnight, then evaporates/thaws when it warms up.

ill keep you guys up to date.

thanks again
