I just replaced my rear brakes on a 09 mustang ,and only one brake started smoking and had a bad smell. The smoking stopped but the smell is still there. Now the smell isnt to bad . I just need to know if there is anything wrong or will it go away? The brakes i put on are ceramic brakes.
If these are ceramic brakes, it's completely normal. I'm not sure why it happens, but I've seen it happen on almost every set of ceramic brakes which I've installed. The smoking will usually only happen once when they get hot enough, then they are basically "cured" and will be golden for the life of them. In other words, this should be nothing to worry about.
