After a week or so of random squealing I took my B to the dealer to have a peek and I find out that the drivers side rear caliper pin is stuck and caused the pad to completely wear out in one spot so the drum is toast too. The dealer wants $430 to do the rear brakes.
I just priced the rotors at $37.99
And pads for $66.
Now I've done brakes before with a friend of mine helping. Anything I should maybe know before I start on these?

The same exact thing happened to mine - same wheel even. I just changed them myself. It wasn't a big deal.

If you haven't done it yet, this would be a good time to paint your calipers. I used G2 on mine.

Brickpig-
They wouldn't cut me any break. I even tried to blame a manufacturer defect so it would be warranty claim. But they blamed rust.

Zinger-
It sucks to have such a new vehicle and be "the guy with the noisy car".
As for painting the calipers, I just have steel wheels, but I plastidipped the hubcaps.
