hi any kind of screeching noise normally means uve got a metal on metal contact so i wd say u probally need ur pads changing also the rust that forms is totally normal when not used for a while goodluck
Sounds like the brake pads may be worn out in the front. Make sure that there is not metal to metal contact that may score the rotors. Also, check the shoes and drums for the rear brakes if so equipped.
If you need instructions on how to disassemble, let me know.
When you say fit properly I assume you mean it's not going back together. Make sure you have the bearings and races installed correctly on the back side and that you are installing the correct rotor on the correct side with the correct bearings. The front and rear bearings look the same but they aren't and if you try putting that rotor on with the front side bearing installed in the rear of the rotor it will never go back together.
because you didnt clean/lubricate the pistons before you replaced the pads they are not able to move back enough to clear the rotors when driving,they should settle down with wear.....( copperslip/anti squeel grease.)
I am assuming you already changed the brake pads. Make sure that the backing plate is on the backside of the pads it wouldnt hurt to put some disc brake quiet (spray) on the backside of the pads. also make sure all of your caliper shims are in place and not rubbing on the rotor. Make sure rotors have been resurfaced or replaced if they are too thin. any imperfections will cause vibration which will cause noise. Some cheap brake pads will squeek no matter what you do. in this case I recomend ceramic brake pads the best price I have found is at pep boys this type of brake pad is superior and very quiet, stays cooler, less brake dust on rims and much better braking. I use pep boys ceramic pads on my customers cars and have had no complaints from them. where with cheaper quality pads it is hit and miss that is why i tell my customers up front if they want the cheaper pads they should expect some noise from time to time and not to be alarmed. It doesnt mean anything is wrong just too much vibration and heat while braking
it seems like the caliber is not completley seated on the rotor or has vibrated loose causeing them to move up.
i would take you vehicle back to who done your brake and have them look at them again and see what they are hanging like that. if you get into an accident because of them would not be good.
