I had my 16 000 km service done at my acura dealer and since then my front brakes groan just before the wheels come to a stop. This did not happen prior to the check up. Weird thing is, when I creep and slow the car down again to a stop, brakes don't groan. Anyway I can fix this at home without bringing it in again?

Thanks

As above, however note that if you've recently washed your rotors ... It may make noises until it's completely dried off. That can take a few good hours, sometimes overnight.

I just realized there are white dots on the brake pads that are visible on the outside. Should these white dots be on the top or the bottom? I looked at the picture that I took when I first brought my TSX home and it shows it on the top (front drivers side brake). Could someone who have never had their brakes inspected check this for me? I have a feeling my dealer put the pads in wrong and this is what's causing the groan noise.

Also, what's a liner? Is there a component in the brake system that is used to eliminate vibrations?

Thanks
