I am guessing that my e-Brake must have developed a rust spot after washing and prolonged parking.

I washed my car, and then put it away for what turned into a month while a series of snow storms and bad weather blew through. Today was a nice day, and I went out for a drive. As I backed out of my garage, the car stopped and resisted further movement. With some repeated forth and back, I got it to move completely out of the garage.

For the first several miles, there was a rubbing sound from the rear at once per wheel revolution. I stopped and checked under and around the car. Nothing seemed wrong. The noise gradually went away. I assume that whatever was rubbing eventually developed a clearance. I cycled the e-Brake several times, and it seems fine.

Have any of you ever encountered something similar?

thanks, Cap

Yep. Something similar happened to me after the first winter storing mine, shortly after it's final carwash of the year. I was so used to setting the parking brake that I didn't think about it for a couple of months. It took a little extra effort to move the car at first, but no harm done. I now just leave it in gear when it's covered.

Yeah, not much need for a parking brake if it is on a level surface and you place it in gear.
