regular 1 second clunking noise felt through brake pedal

Just started seems every second I get a little clunk I can feel through the brake pedal, there are actually 2 different clunks 1 is a single and the second is double. read another link which suggested an abs sensor ?

Yup, it's the heater valve most likely. Turn your heater controls all the way to cold or all the way to hot and it should stop if this is it.
