Replace the brake pads. Use a synthetic grease on the dust pins. If it takes
very little effort to shut up the squealing.. it's more than likely the
front pads. You might have drum brakes though... in which case you'd need to
replace the "shoes" I believe. Anyway, if you did just replace them
recently, you should have put some "disc brake quiet" (orange goo) on the
back of the pads.

The OP was speaking of the pedal itself, not in the front/rear wheel
Get a little high temp grease and find the pivot point in the brake pedal,
then grease it up real good while moving the pedal. It shouldnt take too
much grease to quieten it down.
My 2001 Mali'boo also has the same squeaky brake pedal. I find the sound
irritating, but not enough to spend ant more time to find the source. I did
squirt some silicon spray on the pivot points, but the squeak is still
If you find the source of the squeak, I'd be very interested in what it
takes to get rid of it. For now I just turn up the radio.
