if you do a search using the key words

brakes and squeeling and knocking

a plethora of previous topics on the same subject should appear like magic :)

Clunking noise would be caused by uneven pot distance in the calipers. There 2 pots in each stock caliper.

Does your brake pads have uneven wear, if so, balance out the 2 pots and fit in new pads. Wheelshops have a special tool they use to balance these out.

Also changed to mintex pads recently. Rotors seem ok, though it does a slight tap against the disc covers (behind the rotors) under hard braking.

Either than that, the clunking around corners is gone.

Hope this helps.

I had squeaking pads 2 months after i bought my 99T from a dealer. They replaced all 4 pads under warranty saying they were getting low.
