I got home after having the rears pads replaced and rotors resurfaced and one wheel was very warm/hot and had a smell to it. It was more hot than the other and also had a steel to it. Keep in mind this is the wheel that DID NOT have the hub bearing "problem" that I posted on earlier today. Is it normal for new pads to give off more heat and have a smell t them?

The caliper sliders are probably seized up preventing the caliper from centering itself over the rotor.

Dealer tech probably forget to lube the slide pins.

Smell, MAYBE, heat no. What Merk said. Also a lesser chance of parking brake issues.

They should act the same.. both hot, both cold.. etc

if just one is hot.. either it is the only one working.. or its malfunctioning..

since you said it had a brake smell I'd say its sticking.

Did you completely remove dust boots and slide pins?
Also did you spin the calipers back in?

Smell is usually normal from new pads.

If one is a lot hotter than the other one, than the caliper on that side is sticking, which is fairly common. The caliper piston has corrosion on it that doesn't work well when the piston is pushed back into the caliper.

Depending on how hot it gets, I would either continue running it until it break itself in, or take it back to the shop the did the repairs. The fix is a new rebuilt caliper.

Do you have pistons with special notch on their surface....if YES...then pay attention that you aligne that notch with corresponding "bump" on breaking pad...

As mentioned...sometimes (depends on wich handbrake system you have) rear pistons had to be spinned all the way back in (in case of new pads)

That is probably the problem. If the slot on the piston was not lined up with the pads, the pads will drag.

When you run thin pads for a long time,you expose the caliper piston to travel lengths its not normally used to.This also allows the inner end of the bore to be exposed to pitting for an extended time.Once you push the piston back into territory it hasn't been in for a long while it gets on those "pits" and will be hard to release.

I put new front pads and rotors in about a year and a half ago. Strong smell and lack of feel until they bedded themselves in. For me it was a few days before I was happy with the feel of the new pads.

With the worn pads, the caliper piston was extended outward. The pistons are now way in the caliper bore and likely is hanging up. You maybe be replacing a caliper(s) soon. If everything is working good, you should not be smelling anything from the brakes.
