    Default Squeeky rear brakes, OVERHEATING too

    Hi guys,

    i just changed my rear brakes, discs and pads, 3days ago and they are squeeking after 10-20mins of driving. the discs are boiling hot by this time and smell of burning. they dont squeek at 60-70, but at 50 an slower they start to sqeal.

    luckily the braking power has not been effected. obviously as they are new pads an discs they're still bedding in and i'm hoping that the sqeeking will stop but just incase.... any thoughts on what it is?

    cheers
