Sounds like the shims have been removed .. look at a new set of pads and see if there is shims on them

Are the pads you fitted cheaper ones .. my first choice would be new good quality or oem pads
Check a new set of pads you will see if the shims are pre fitted .. I had to remove mine on the Clio and Laguna due to them being to tight ..
