I recently installed new Sumo brake pads to my 2009 Polaris Ranger 700 Crew Cab. Three of the four sets of pads installed fine but I
had difficulty with my right rear wheel install. I had to force the pads onto the disk by tapping them gently with a rubber mallet for them to fit.
I was hoping once they were installed they would seat and wear in easily ... wrong. They would not allow my wheel to rotate. I had my piston(s) all the way
in and pumped my brakes once installed and went for a gentle test drive in forward and reverse. However, I noticed the wheel area getting very hot and smoking. Has anybody encountered this problem? I welcome any suggestions. What is odd is 3 of the 4 pads installed and operate fine.

Did you back the adjustment screw all the way out? It is a small allen head screw on the side of the caliper.
