I'm with Spooler - there doesn't appear to be a lot of damage so you may be OK. Clean the pad real good (brake cleaner) before re-installing. I'd inspect the pad and rotor after a few hundred miles.

But then again, it's your brakes, not the radio. Why take a chance? You may have applied enough force to crack the pad.

Ok guys here is before and after. Looks pretty good, feels smooth. There is a small line toward the outer edge though. The pad doesnít look cracked. I think I will put it back together and see how it feels. Although I think Iíll replace pads and rotors sooner then later now for piece of mind.

Everything seems good and smooth after cleaning it up and putting it back together. No more squeaks so far and also no grinding lol thanks for the help guys. Iíll check the pad again after a few hundred miles.
