New breaks are squeaking

10

Asked by Nov 14, 2016 at 04:17 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Malibu LT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently changed my wife's front breaks and
rotors.. Everything seemed fine after I tested them,  
but then a few days later they started to squeaking
when she would come to a stop. It's not a grinding
sound just squeaking. Can anyone help me figure
this problem out? Thanks for taking the time to
read this. Have a great day
