Hi I have 52 plate honda civic type r, I recently had all the pads changed and the front discs, also one of my rear calipers was ceased but the mechanic managed to free it. But now both rear calipers are warm and I think its the top of the brake pad which is red hot, as it burnt my finger, couldnt see what I was touching as it was dark there was alao a smell of burning brakes, but the fronts were stone cold not warm at all not even a little bit, the hand brake doesnt feel like it holds properly so ive been pulling it harder than usual. Any ideas?

Check for residual line pressure holding the rear brakes on slightly, check that the hand brake is not dragging as well, start there.
