1) Do rotors always need to be changed or resurfaced when installing new brake pads?
2) My brake pads are 30,000 miles old. I had aftermarket front brake pads and shims installed. The front shims shifted out of position twice, coming in contact with the rotor hub and made a scrapping noise. The mechanic removed the shims recently, but I still hear a slight clicking once in a while when I come to a complete stop. There appears to be a tacky black paste on the back of the brake pads.
I believe the sound I am hearing are the front brake pads occasionally moving when I stop my car. What can I do to remedy this problem?
have the same problem?
