Hi all,

I’m new here, so I hope I don’t sound to ignorant. I just replaced my front brake pads and now I’m getting a strange noise from the front end.

Can anyone help.

Thanks,

It may be normal sound from the vent holes in the disc combined with new pads. My neighbors rear makes it & my front makes some to. I just got used to it. It also depends on what kind of noise it actually is.

At real slow speeds, and pushing it around in the garage I hear the pads dragging the rotors....But out on the highway, I can't hear anything but wind and pipes....

You will hear the pads drag very lightly against the rotor when pushing it around by hand. Normal, second noise.....it sound like a light buzz..? Thats pretty much normal too. It will by come less and less but probably never go away totally. Mine made that noise for months/ 2-3K miles.
