I have a 2010 Fusion Sport. I put new brake pads and rotors on my car and everything was fine at first. About a month later (I had to leave and go back to the united states so I wasn't driving it for 3 weeks), it developed a horrible scraping noise just after I replaced them. I went to the garage, took the back right caliper off and looked at the pads- nothing unusual but that's where the noise was coming from. Cleaned the rotors and pads, lubed the piston boot and just swapped the pads around and remounted. A week later, scraping is back and now there's an annoying moan coming from the front brakes. What is up with this?
Between 5-20mph you can hear it. If you accelerate. You can't really hear it. When you cruise or slow down (no braking). YOU CAN HEAR-HEAR IT. It sound terrible but nothing too unusual to the rotors. I have yet to take the other wheels off and look at them (only one done was rear right). It's get infuriating how annoying it is.
