New Rotors and pads

installed new rotors and pads over the weekend. for some reason there is a bad grinding noise coming from the left back wheel. the fronts weren't replaced. we adjusted the parking brake and tried a few other tricks that we found online but it won't stop. plus is only makes the noise while turning right. when the rotors and brakes aren't warm the noise isn't there.

Front brake pad replacement Dodge Nitro 2007 - 2012 disc pads rotors Install Remove Replace How to change.
Front brake pad replacement is a fairly easy job to tackle, if everything is in good shape (caliper slides are free, piston collapses pretty easy) I believe this video will cover several years, makes, models in the Dodge, Chrysler family.
