Don't know of any brake symptoms unique to Intrigues. How do you

know it is the rear brakes? If you detected the rear brakes being

bad because the emergency brake doesn't work, probably a snapped

cable. Assuming the car still stops (front brakes still work), you

could have worn pads (unlikely), a broken brake line (probably will

cause the front brakes to quit working soon - look for leaks), a

faulty master cylinder (rear brake cylinder shot - unusual). I'd

take her to a brake shop if you can't diagnose the cause. I't hell

when you are headed for a school bus and can't stop.
