I did a complete brake job on my daughters Suzuki Aerio this past weekend, new pads and shoes, new drums and rotors. As I installed the last rotor and pads, it didn’t seem to fit properly. Thinking it just needed to be fully installed (plus being pretty tired at this point), I put the tire on and tightened all the lug nuts. Since it was still on jack stands, I started the car to check for binding (it’s all wheel drive). All but the right front wheel spun. I took it off the stands and took it for a test drive and there seemed to be no obvious binding – no pulling, no sound, again, nothing obvious. I decided to drive it to work (About 50 miles round trip). When I got home there was discoloration on the rotor and it was very hot. I won’t drive it again until I can get the wheel off and check everything again, but I’m looking for suggestions as to what I might have done wrong or what I can do to make it right.
