Trek 4300/disc brake?

So I just picked up a trek 4300 disc from the NEX (deployed so no LBS). Rode it once and am still adjusting the sitting position, getting used to it. So the front disc sounds like it is hanging up on the pad. Is that normal for discs on a MB? If its not suppose to can someone give me a quick low down on how to adjust it and how it should be adjusted (specs).


This is my first MB, have been riding a road bike for a couple of years now and have started to do work on that on my own. But obviously this MB is a bit different, ie hydro disc brakes.

just loosen up the caliper bolts and hold the brake lever while you tighten them back, that should line everything up
