First noticed the problem going through a roundabout yesterday, turning left through it I heard a grinding/squealing coming from the front drivers side. It sounds like metal on metal as if my brake pads were bad but I replaced front pads/rotors/bearings less than 500 miles ago. Upon quick inspection I noticed that the drivers side rotor is quite rough on the outside face while the inner face is smooth. The pass rotor is smooth too. I’m thinking it might be something caught in between the pad and rotor. Any other ideas? I can’t get it into the garage right now but any input would be appreciated.

welcome to the club!
I would check the brake job you just did - did you clean the sliders so the caliper moves freely? sounds like its binding causing uneven wear. when you get it apart, you will see the issue. one pad will be thick and the other, almost down to the rivets.

take it easy on the brakes until you sort this.

Doesn't grind while braking in a straight line?

Sounds like you just need to get it up in the air again and see what's going on in there.
