Protégé brake swap issue

Okay I did the swap and everything but for some reason today it seems like the calipers are partially sticking. Ill hear the pads rubbing on the rotors when I'm driving. My only thought is that I have very [shizzle]ty autozone brake pads on for right now, I think they are organic material. Would that matter?

yes, depending on what type of material the pads are made of. It can cause some noises when braking and while driving but it still shouldn't be that bad. I would just brake the pads a little more and hopefully the pads sit better with the rotors and noises go away. That's what I think at least.

Yeah I've never had this problem. I have ebc brake pads on the way so if these don't work out, ill throw those on and see if they bed in a little better.

did you make sure that when you installed the pads that they were adjusted properly also?....If Im not mistaken, you have to turn the allen key on the back of the caliper to compress the piston and then you also have to adjust the e-brake and such....In other words - Is a process that has to be followed in order to make sure that when you brake there is enough force from the piston to engage the pads onto the rotors but yet still not that much so you can still use your e-brake and stuff.

Okay makes sense, is this only for the e brake application or just the compression and release of the piston when pushing the brake as well?

you def need to do some adjusting with that hidden adjuster to get them right. i just put a large breaker bar on my lugs so i can freely spin the wheel. While i make adjustments at the same time. That way you can feel and hear when it drags, and you will know where to align it at.

Okay I went to adjust it and it didn't release any, I'm guessing since I forced the piston in, there is no going back. So ill exchange these out for some more calipers tomorrow and see what's up
