Noise From Newly Installed Pads and Rotors
I will post this in 2 spots as I am not sure which forum will get more traffic.
I just installed new front pads and rotors on my 2002 Ranger. I have done this many times before on this and other vehicles of mine, so I feel as if it was done correctly.
The issue is when the brakes are applied, they make a noise, like scraping, not high pitched, just like a noise. Hard to describe. I have never heard this before. They are semi-metallic pads. I sprayed brake cleaner on the rotors before installing to get any grease or protectant off. Could they just be breaking in? Don't want to ruin anything.
I get the noise and I am not sure what to do and it makes me slightly nervous. Also, I think one pad may be hanging up a little as I get a scraping/clicking noise. Is that possible? Is it possible that I tightened the screws for the caliper too tight? Not sure what to do, please help.
