Replace Front Brakes

I replaced my front brakes today, the only thing that I didnt do was unscrew the cap on the reservoir.

My brakes are dragging alittle bit I can hear them as I drive. Any ideas? built up pressure from not unscrewing the cap???

you did push the pistons back into the caliper when the brakes were out? having the cap off or loose will not cause that. more like piston sticking.

What shape are the rotors in? Did you get them turned or are they new?

I agree, sounds like a ceased caliper.

New rotors. did not do anything else but compress the calipers and slap on new pads. They went in without a hitch
