Okay have changed fronts & back pads & disc still have clunk copper greased the clunk noise sounds exactly what your saying bob but the noise is load & abit embarrassing have I think it's brake pads but too loud of a noise though arb checked all is tight or subframe but removed subframe & replaced still have the noise, suspension feels good & strong thought I haven't change the (bush or bearing mount) ? But must say bob they do feel & sound like pads! Took it to central vw audi they said your rear pads a getting low could be that but not sure I have changed the pads already in the past no change all genuine vw parts

Have read post in the past stating you have to press the brake a bit more harder when comming to a stop if I'm right otherwise pads have play in them is that right!

So you all have this CLUNK noise when your reversing slowly & braking on the mk5 r32 must say it is a bit loud!!
I dont have the clunk on this car [R32] but on my last Impreza I had the clunk when reversing and braking and that was due to the front pads moving slightly within the caliper.

Is there anything to stop this noise, example a caliper stiffening kit, like the mk4 r32 kit "Jamesbaby" has for sale on this forum recently. Thanks!
