Question about 2006 Nissan Sentra
To my knowledge , some brake pads have metal compounds , and some are aspestos , i once used metal type on my falcon years ago and found when they got hot it was like an MTT bus braking . these type were used on taxi's for longer endurance but made noise when hot , despite being fitted correctly .
sometimes if you have touched face of pads with your hands this will also cause this noise , if so remove and lightly rub with sand paper to remove any foriegn matter and replace carefully , also brake fluid from bleeding afterwards could cause this also , did you notice if there were any little plates behind brake pads , these little flat dust plates or anti vibration plates that are behind pads some times work better with a little silicon between them and the pads , this helps a little.
also on some models i have found the rear caliper has to be screwed in and pressed also , some hand brake systems require this to un adjust the hand brake system when replacing pads .
inside the piston of the rear caliper will have a cross shape if so ! be care full if so , as one is right hand thread and one is left , if they a screwed the wrong way the piston is very hard to re-align the thread again without the chance of cross threading ..
hope this helps !
