Default Please Help

just changed my front brakes on a 1992 pontiac bonneville sse on sunday. Changed the brakes with no problem. Today I can smell burning from the right front wheel while driving. I inspect and I can smell a burnt smell coming from right above the front driver side brake. Pls help me repair any damage I may have done to my beautiful bonneville.

Did you put on new rotors at the same time?
If so...did you wipe off the grease on the rotor with solvent?

Default brake

You may have to remove the caliper again to see whats going on. Was the inner pad worn more than the outer on the old brakes? If so the piston is binding or the slides need lubing. In some cases the rubber hose is not releasing pressure due to being worn internally.
