Brakes problem
1996 Other Nissan Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125255 miles

Aloha,
Just changed my front disc brake pads on my 1996 Nissan Quest Van. While driving about 2 miles, the two front rims are very hot. You can touch the rims for a maximum of 3 seconds before it gets unbearable. What could be the problem. The car drives well and the brakes work. I did not bleed the brake system.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

No. Did not grease any brake parts? Which parts should I grease and where are they. Also, the front wheels were hard to turn.

Grease where the brake pads slide on the calipers, on the caliper bolts/slide rails basically any part that moves on the bracke shoes and caliper.

If this dont help try breaking open the bleeder valves does that loosen the wheels now?
