    Question how do i stop this noise!?

    i have just my astra through its MOT and i needed new front discs and pads . but when i brake it sounds as though its grinding metal to metal! its really embarrassing, so was wondering if they just need wearing in or something else?
    thanks in advance!

    If its new discs and pads it'll just be the bedding in sound, just taking the edge of the disc and pads, it'll sort itself out .. No emergency stops for a little while though!

    Emergency stops if need be!
    But take it easy on the braking until they bed in.
    Probably take a couple of hundred miles....about a weeks driving to me.
