Question about 2008 Mini Cooper S
I just replaced the rotors and the pads. After taking a short trip, about 10 miles smell something burned. While all of them were sort of hot, the one in the front was almost changing color. How can I fix that?
Check the caliper as see if it is free. Sounds like it might be locked up.Did you screw the puck back ,when you installed the the new pads and was it free turning? You might also check the two bolts that hold the caliper and see if they are free floating also.

Hi Steve. As you said you did replace the rotors and pads. Did you have problem before replacing the rotors or just to renew was? The reason I am asking is just to see whether the problem was there and before. Now, if you had the same problem before renewing and after renew you still have the problem,just go back on your car, jag it up putting it on stands,turn the wheels an see which one is tight on turning. If is just one, open the bleeder to release the pressured fluid and turn the wheel,if is turning free,just get in the car and apply brakes
after turn the wheel and if you do have stiffness,you have a faulty brake hose inside the flow hole. Just renew the faulty brake hose. If you do not face any hose failure, renew the brakes Master cylinder.
