    yes the friction material that the disc pad is made from and come off the metal backing plate so even though the brakes worked fine it clunked every time brakes were applied or the car went from fowards to reverse

    Or look at the front wishbone bushes, mine went on my toledo and sounded like the brakes too, but it was the wishies rising up under load of brake, then releasing as car settled or moved forward. I was adamant it was my pads too as the wishies had only been done 6 months prior, but it seemed they either failed prematurely or the cheap set I got off Ebay were indeed "cheap".

    Sounds like the pads have just got a bit sticky at the points where they slide side to side in the pad carriers. Usually just a case of taking the pads out and cleaning the edges and maybe a tiny bit of copper grease on the contact points.
    It happens quite often on front or back but you might find pads need changing anyway.
