Why would the brakes squeal only after reversing on a 1970 Bug?

in VW's when you have the breaks adjusted out too far they tend

to grab when reversing. There is an auto adjuster in the rear drum

to keep your rear brakes adjusting. If the brakes are worn out they

will "hang up" after reverse and cause squeeling.
