Default Changed Cv Axle Now get Rubber Smell

Hey Fellas,

I recently changed the passenger cv axle on my 94 Honda Accord. I also changed the brake pads (driver and passenger). I noticed that after I took for a test drive, I was getting this odd burnt rubber smell coming from the passenger side (side the axle was changed).

At first it smelled like an electrical burn smell..but as i drove it home from work yesterday, the smell was distinctively like a burning rubber smel.

Any ideas?

new engine mounts tend to smell as well as tires

Thank you holmesnmanny,

After about five days of driving it, the smell is gone. Not sure is the pads needed to be worn in a bit or it was the smell of the new boot...either way thanks for your insight.
