knocking noise after changing breaks and rotors

hey guys got a question i just got new breaks and rotors on my 2000 528i and now it seems like i have a knocking noise in the back rear wheel when pressing the break..my guess is they didnt put the break in right or tighted it correctly could this be the issue?

Yes.......It is very likely something was not tightened, especially if the knocking noise was not there before.

Sounds like maybe they left the brake caliper loose.......

1st thing you need to do, is call the shop that performed the repairs!
