I recently just changed my rotors and brake pads on my 2001 a4 b5. I noticed this rattling noise when i am driving at slower speeds on bumpy roads. Almost as if the pads are loose or something. But i checked them and that's not the issue. Also when i hear the rattling and i apply brake pressure, the noise stops completely. This rattling is not present at highway speeds! Any ideas would be awesome.

It sounds like the pads rattling in the caliper. Did you use brake quiet when you changed the pads?

You can grab it at any auto parts store. My favorite is a CRC. http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/CRC-4-oz-118-294-ml-high-temperature-disc-brake-quiet/_/N-268d?itemIdentifier=348169_0_0_

Grab the dust pan and push it away from the rotors.
