    Hey my husband fitted new discs/pads, callipers etc on the front and now smoke is coming out from wheel arches when car is driving. Would that amount of smoke come from the calliper binding or does anyone have any idea what it may be ? Thanks ( ps excuse my ignorance as I don't understand some things as I am not that knowledgeable )

    That would suggest that something is amiss with the front brakes, if it is both sides I would say someone with maybe more technical knowledge needs to whip the wheels off and check that the hubs are rotating freely, if not, find out what is jamming the wheels and sort the problem.
