It sounds like your breake pads have to much metal in them
Nothing you can do other than changings pads again

haha good 1 lol


maybe paint your rotors like the doofus in a post i seen haha thats a good one to ! :lgh2:

yeah your pads are of a hard compound so they squeel a bit, were they a ceramic pad ? they do this (some) cuts down on the dust if there harder pads
