I just had new brake pads and new rotors installed on my 1999 Maxima (both front and rear disc brakes)yesterday. Today, I noticed a very slight "scraping" noise - sounds like from the rear - when driving but now when braking. It is not loud. It almost more of a "shooshing" sound if that makes sense. Any ideas what this could be? Is it natural for the first couple of days after a brake job?
It*s impossible to tell you if there is anything wrong with the new brakes that were put on your Maxima by your description. Please take it back to the shop that did the work and have them check it over to make sure your car is safe.

New brakes will tend to make some noises as the pads and rotors groove with each other. If you notice the noise getting louder, or if the brakes start to feel different, it*s safer to have it checked out.
