E-brake Squeak

I have a slight squeak when I release the ebrake on my '06 330i. I think this may be the cause of a slight squeak I get at low speeds. Should I replace the e-brake shoes or do something different?

I have a 2006 325i with 115k miles. My driveway has a pretty good incline and thats where I usually park at home. I replaced my parking brakes a few days ago for other reasons. However, they needed replacing as the shoes were pretty much at metal. Whether that is the cause of your noise or not, it's probably about time to change parking brakes on your 2006 unless it's a garage queen or something.

I got Centric shoes, which were fine. I also got a Centric parking brake rebuild kit, which consisted of springs, camlocks for holding the shoes down and the adjuster ...thing. That kit looked lowgrade and I was leery to use it, but tried anyway. The camlock broke almost immediately in the course of trying to lock the shoes down. Total junk. Luckily there was nothing wrong with the old parking brake hardware.
