I replaced my front brake pads and now on my passenger side there's a weird rubbing or grinding sound not when I'm braking but while I am in motion.
Do you
have the same problem?

More than likely this is the backing plate is dragging on the rotor. Basically I would just lift the vehicle and then spin the wheel and look under there to locate it.

Here are some pictures of the backing plate.

Thank you that's what I thought as well and I tried using a pry bar to pry it back off the rotor. But must not have gotten it bent far enough back.

Okay. Thanks. Let us know if it was something different but I suspect we are correct. Thanks for using 2CarPros.

How do you recommend me bending it back?

You may have to take it off and actually hammer it straight if it doesn't bend back. However, it is just thin metal so you can put a screw driver between it and the rotor and bend it back lightly. Just be sure not to hurt the rotor but as long as you are mindful of that, it will be fine.
