    confused Noise from brakes

    Hi guys had my front discs and pads done around 2 months ago and they have been squeaking ever since, so i used gsi3.2's guide to get the pads out (surprise surprise not a hint of copper slip) gave the backs a smudge of copper grease and slipped em back in, all went swimmingly and the squeal went, however now i'm getting pretty loud groaning/scraping sound from the drivers side wheel, when accelerating or coasting but it stops when actually braking, gonna pop the wheel back off tomorrow and check all is well, any idea what to look out for please?

    if they didn't grease the pads...did they clean the pad carrier with a wire brush to remove all the old, baked on brake dust??..Did you smear copper grease on the 'ears' of the pads where they touch the pad carrier?? I think what you've got is a sticky pad...
