    Is it clunking every time you apply? If it's only occasionally then the clunk itself is not an issue, that's the self-adjuster I believe. When it does that just release the handbrake and apply it again. Eight clicks does sound a lot though - can't recall what mine is but I'm sure it's only about four/five.

    sounds like air in the lines or your brakes need bleeding but still nothing to do with 8 clicks or maybe you have no fluid in check that and defo check for leaks its sounds a bit suspect to me
