Strange E-Brake issue

Okay, for probably the last month, I have been having an issue with the ebrake cable on the passenger rear and possibly the driver side as well. It looks as though the cable is rubbing on the caliper bolt. This is causing a super annoying squeaking sound driving down the road, the sound disappears when the brakes or ebrake is applied when moving.

The car is parked every night on a hill and is kept in gear as well as the ebrake being pulled.

What to do...

Hmmm, you sure your brake pads aren't glazed, my rear end seals was leaking (thanks to the Dealership's fabulous and gifted insurance rep) they gave me a used rear and didn't bother to replace the seals anyway, I got gear oil on the brake pads and and it made them shiny and smooth, they squeak like crickets. Unless your E-brake cable is extra long and extended I don't think thats your problem, take your brake pads out and inspect for extra shine! Get back to stangnet.
