Default Breaks making noise when I apply them at stop

I have a honda civic 1993...My breaks make noise when I press them at a
stop sign or any any intersection, when the car is completely stopped.
I don't get a noise when I press them during driving. I had my pads,
rotor, and wheel cylinder replaced only within last month or so. In
fact, got the wheel cylinders changed only like 2-3 days ago. The noise
is like grrrrr... something.. It seems that it is coming from behind of
the car, somewhere close to the closet.

Any ideas?

--------------------------------------------

You said the noise is close to the closet . . . Are we talking about a
MOTORHOME, or a '93 Honda Civic? :-)
Please describe the Grrrr better too. Is it steel on steel or like a
fingernail on chalk board? Other? How does this noise compare with the
noise described in you owner's manual (brakes worn)?

are the pads oem or aftermarket? is the car automatic? if yes to both,
it's creeping forward and the pads making noise. either press the BRAKE
pedal harder or replace the pads.

Does the "grrr" sound like a metallic grinding noise, or does it sound like
the bump-bump-bump noise you get when you run your hand down a rubber
balloon?

If it's the rubber balloon thing, this is common with FRONT DISC brakes and
automatic transmissions, especially with aftermarket pads or with humid
weather. The symptoms show up most if you are stopped at a light,
and you let off the brakes **just enough** to allow the car to creep
forwards **very** slightly.

If you are using dealer pads, it's the front brakes, you have an auto
tranny, and it's the rubber balloon sound, don't worry about it. When the
humidity goes down, the noise will lessen.
