Hello, welcome. My name is***** will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.
Is the noise coming from the front or rear of the vehicle?

front,the sound is not noticeable when the car is idleing, more noticeable when accelerating between gears,
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 2 years ago.
From what you are describing the issue that you are having is the beginning of a failing front hub/wheel bearing, this is fairly common and results in this sound. The front hub bearings will need to be checked as a first step.
