I agree with this.macnut wrote: ↑Oct 1st, 2017 11:23 amAs the noise is really loud, I would be suspecting something else such as:
- a heat shield contacting the rotor
- no shims used on replacement pads (assuming factory pads used shims)
- replacement pads while listed as OE replacement are not a perfect fit
- caliper bracket mounting bolts not torqued down correctly
Bedding-in is certainly important with new brakes, but the fact is that very few car owners do it - and suffer no consequences.
I also suggest that you may have glazed the rotors and pads by now and the only way to get rid of that is to resurface or clean the rotors.
