Not trying to pizz you off or anything.
I am a member like you, 'cept they deemed me sorta a Trouble Shooter, hence "Helper Satus".......I am not a Paid Mechanic....nor am I paid here, like many of the other fellers
This is my HOBBY, and I try to help
I try to make it fun for the both of us!
Many do not get an answer.....so I help take up some slack.
As for the "Did you this and that"---some people have no business even touching a machine!
If you noticed, I wrote in bold Caps, Things that you should check 1st..............Trying to save your engine and keep you from walking!.......How thoughtful of me!
Your initial Question left alot to be desired in SYMPTOMS of your racket.
As for "Static" a word meaning "Sitting Still, In Place, Not Moving"
I found 2 STUPID, wild noises that stumped me for a while.
1) Friends rig, squealing noise, very low......days later....tape player (thought to be dead) was turning
2) My Jeep....Ding Ding Ding repetitive, thought it was "Engine Pinging".........days later.....turned out to be the Bullet Casing on my keyring flopping around!
Does the SOUND change when you Apply brakes---even gently apply?
I suspect that.........YES!, it could be your brakes!
EVEN BRAND SPANKING NEW ONES!
If below is correct, this is not Dangerous---only annoying!
Specifically DISC BRAKES, many people FAIL to use BRAKE QUIETNER (not proper name) when they install pads...........the little packets at the parts store counter cost $0.50 on up, and a CAN might be several dollars...........Gosh thats High! (reason its seldom used by little guys)
This stuff is usually Blue or Red....and sorta thick.
It is applied to the backside of the pads (avoiding Metal to Metal contact of the parts).........During installation
If you do not BELIEVE me.......Call ANY AUTO PARTS STORE......and ask if 'Ole CJ MEDEVAC is correct.
See This : Built from a scrap heap, almost from scratch, all by myself 2 years--little fundage.....No noises in it! See, I do know some stuff!
What do you think now?
As I spend my free time, trying to keep you safe, as I do with my Daughter and Step Daughter....And the Evil Woman whom I'm Hitched to?
Your Rebuttle time!
