Unhappy Rotor/Brake pad issue. HELP!

Hello. I'm new to this forum and I'm sure this question has been solved a few times but heres the issue I am having. I replaced my brakes and rotors in the front and now everytime I drive, I get a slight humming/vibration noise from in the front. When I slightly apply the brake, it goes away. During turns it gets slightly louder. I've removed and reinstalled everything back together twice now.

Again, new brakes and rotors. I purchased them at O'Reilly. Brakes are non ceramic.

Any input is appreciated.

I think you draw your own conclusion.

You could try MB brake paste, and when that doesn't fix it try MB pads and rotors.

Your car is only 4 years old and you're already replacing original parts with those from the lowest bidder?

I am with Dr X. All of the pads' backing plats need a good high temp synthetic brake paste. Same with the sliding pins that were inside the rubber sleeves except with those the pins need to be cleaned well first.

Check your wheel bearings as well.
