I just changed my front pads.Took it for a little spin,well its like there
stuck shut.. pulled back in the driveway and smoke started just rolling out the front
its like the calipers are stuck shut... is there a reset button you have to push after you change your break pads like you do for your oil?

could be a couple things...theres slides that the caliper slides on...supposta clean and grease them,, could be holding the caliper...also theres clips that clip to the caliper mounting bracket that the pads "slide" in...either install the new ones that came with the brake pads or if you didnt get any clean the old ones with a wire brush being careful you dont bend them too much...make sure theyre installed correct too

i'm betting it's the slide pins. pull em out, clean em and grease em.

Are both wheels smoking? Sometimes the rubber brake hose collapses inside and doesn't let the caliper release the puck.

Make sure you have the pads on the correct sides. There's two outside pads and two inside pads.

sounds like the washer on the banjo bolt is leaking, reseat the banjo bolts. Make sure the surfaces are clean.

Then push the Easy button.
