Clunk sound when I lift off the brake pedal

Is this normal.. ???

You can heard the cable from inside the car.  It's quite loud.

    No it's fine, something to do with the LHD/RHD conversion type thing, means the mechanisms remain on the left of the car so you can hear it engage/release when you press the brakes! Pursuing its the same sound, is it kind of like a "pop" noise from the passenger foot well inside the cabin?

    Mine does this too, especially when I take foot off brake quickly.  Sounds like it comes from the passenger side which I believe where all the brake gubbins are in the engine bay.

    Its a similar noise to that of the hill holder when it kicks in.

    If it's the same noise as we are all referring too, then there's nothing wrong with the car at all. All the Pandas do this as well

    The noise comes from the passenger side to the brake servo. All perfectly safe  and normal :)
