Be kind im a boot to repairing things on my vehicle!
I changed my rear pads/rotors on my 2000 infiniti I30 and when I am driving by buildings or anything like that it sounds like the rotor is scraping or rubbing against pads (when I am not braking), these are the steps I did to get the job done.
***I purchased the "Weaver Silver Brake pads"
1. opened the cap for the brake fluid
2. broke the lugs no the vehicle.
3. lifted the vehicle
4. removed the rim
5. removed the bolts from the brake caliper
6. removed the caliper from rotor
7. took off the old brake pads
8. removed the bracket that the caliper mounts to0
9. removed the rotor
10. cleaned and mounted old rotor
11. Installed the caliper bracket.
12. Aplied brake quite to new pads
13. installed the new pads (metal clip sticking out of the pads facining inwards)
14. Compressed the piston with the proper tool. (spun the piston until the caliper would easily fit over new pads)
15. fit the caliper over new pads
**** Does there need to be equal space between each side of the pads and rotor or does that not really matter?
16. Installed the two remaining bolts for the caliper
17. re- installed the tire.
18. lowered the vehicle
19. Put the cap on the brake fluid and then did the brake in proccess for my brakes.
Please advise if I did anything wrong or completely missed something.
If I turn it by hand it sounds like it rubs or scrapes in one spot. I have a video of what it sounds like at speeds if anyone needs it let me know.
