Use the brake to slow down.

My EL used to do that too. I found that if you went into first at 40km/h it was fine, it didn't sound happy otherwise.

Using an auto for slowing down does not hurt it. In fact manually selecting 1st enguages extra clutches for exactly that reason.

And unlike the unhelpful people above, i think its worth finding out why instead of just not doing it anymore. The clunking means something isnt working right and you might want to check it out before it gets worse.
