Squeaking noise while braking?

When I reverse my car (CLS500 '06) outta the garage in the morning and brake there is a long but slight squeaking noise at the end of the braking just before the car comes to a stop. I'm guessing this noise is coming from the brakes themselves. I have noticed it more now that it is cold and snowy (Chicago). Perhaps the snow/water is not drying because of the cold temperature and thus causing the brakes to sqeak? I never noticed this when it rained during the warmer temperatures. I also have not noticed this when I brake going forward, only in reverse. Does this happened to anyone else?

Noisy brakes are a Mercedes staple. Your's isn't too bad. If it gets worse, and you don't want to turn up your radio, try a really hard brake or two -- it should help eliminate the noise.

yup as stated by GS... that's why I take off all my wheels every month and clean all my brakes (air pressure and some sanding) and if it gets worst I repaiste (mb brake paste) all the pads.
