Default 2003 Accord Brakes Popping?

Wondering if any other 03 Accord owners are noticing this. When I
first get in the car when it's been sitting for a few (5-6 hours) and
start driving, the first time I push the brakes, I hear a pop on one
side of the car (sounds like it comes from the front), then a split
second later, another pop from the other side of the car. Brakes seem
to be very sensative the first few uses also. Anybody else
experiencing this?

Thanks for any help

I remember reading somewhere, perhaps for my Toyota, where on some cars the
ABS system does a self test. The self test can result in a clunking noise
of the braking system. If this is what is making your noise, it would occur
in a fairly consistent amount of time after the engine is started, and the
pattern of the noise would be consistent.

Is this an automatic? If so, you have to push on the brake to shift the
transmission. Is this when you get the noise? If it is not an automatic,
do you habitually set the parking brake? If you do not set the parking
brake do you get the noise? The brake sensitivity issue may just be due to
the vacuum differences when the engine is cold vs warmed up.

It does occur very consistently - the first time I press the brakes.
The sound is exactly the same every time. It is a manual
transmission. I always set the parking brake. I'll try not setting
it to see if the noise still happens. Thanks.
