Banging brakes

There's a banging noise from my brakes when they're applied - and I get the same when driving off after braking.

The noise is loud and comes from the front wheel driver's side

A better drive and better equipped than the previous Passat. Comfortable and has more status than, say, a Ford Mondeo.
