Hi all. I bought a three-year-old car a week ago /35 000 km/. After a few days, I heard this sound while braking at low speeds.

Don't you have experience with a similar sound? I hope it's not a brake actuator.
Thanks

If you are referring to the sound you hear at 0:12, that is the brake booster pump kicking in to rebuild brake line pressure. Completely normal function to happen mid-drive.
Congrats on your purchase btw, and welcome to the club.

I'm talking about sounds in the third and eighth seconds. A few quick throws in a row. It sounds like a movie when a big wooden ship is loaded :)
Thanks

I am not sure I can hear the sounds you are talking about. Even with my volume turned all the way up while wearing headphones, just sounds like normal brake operation to me.
If it concerns you, perhaps changing the brake pads and rotors out would be your best bet. Any time I buy a vehicle the first thing I do is replace them with performance brakes (if available, if not I get the premium OE replacements). Shouldnt be terribly expensive if you do the work yourself.

No, I mean the sound of something knocking on the brakes five times.
I've been driving with auris for a long time, whirly sound is ok, I know
