When I brake the car makes a noise similar to when the pads are worn out a grinding noise. The car feels heavier on acceleration. The pads are in good condition and so is the rotor the 2 screws have been tighten but the pads are still loose. Please reply with good advice on what the situacion might be and tips on hw to fix.

The claliper has to slide inorder for pads to work that may be what you are seeing. Otherwise replace the caliper brake pin kits. Make sure your spring clips are installed. Item #4 marked on pic.
