Okay, was there any heat problems before you changed the pads?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
not that I noticed but can't be sure
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 7 years ago.
Okay. Typically on this vehicle it is due to a problem with the caliper. On these vehicles with the parking brake built into the caliper it is common for the caliper to begin to hang up and keep some drag on the pads after the brakes are applied. This will require caliper replacement.
