Default Clicking noise coming from wheel well after Brake Job??

About a month ago I replace all for sets of brakes and rotors. I replaced the rotors with slotted and dimpled performance ones with semi metallic pads. It has been really warm here lately and with the window open I noticed a fairly constant clicking noise coming from the front wheel well. The noise coincides with the turning of the wheel, but doesn't stop when I apply the brakes. I am assuming it has something to do with the new brakes but not 100% sure. It doesn't sound too alarming, but its really annoying. Is it possible that I may have accidentally switched the left and right side pads or something? I will be jacking it up tomorrow to try and diagnose the problem. Just wondering if anyone had experienced this, or has any advice for what to look for?

Clicks that coincide with turning, but aren't necessarily affected by braking, are often attributed to CV joints or wheel bearings...

Thanks for the advice, but this doesn't really seem to be affected by turning the wheel either. Its fairly consistent as long as the car is moving. Its almost like a baseball card in the spokes, but more muffled. If that makes sense.

Do we have anti squeal pins on our pads? Could be installed wrong. the only other thing I could think of is the pad shims being installed wrong or not at all.

Does it do it in reverse? Only on weight transfer?

Are you saying that the noise gets faster as the wheel spins faster? If so, then Heart's comment applies.

check to make sure that one of the dust shields isn't rubbing against the rotor. mine did this back in the day and made some stupid sound effects like you describe.

So I pulled off the calipers again, and put some rubberized anti brake noise compound on the back of the pads, but the noise is still there. After further listening, I think it is the brake pad rubbing on the rotor, even though I am not pressing the pedal. I have done many brake jobs before and never had an issue. Any thoughts on what I might have missed to cause this?

I had this exact problem on my 91 prelude. Pads were rubbing against the rotor without the pedal being pressed. Made a clicking noise all the time You may want to try reapplying pressure by bleeding the brakes, and then placing the pads back on. Best to do this quick as that's constant grinding of your pads. Hope this helps.

Yeah I will have to try something. I don't think they are rubbing much cause I can still turn the rotor by hand. Its just really annoying.

they might have hammered on the impact screwdriver to get the rotor screws out, that could ruin the wheelbearings.
