If it's not affected when gears change you are likely right.

If it doesn't happen when the car is stationary and doesn't change with the revving of the engine it is not likely tendioners or pulleys. Things driven by the engine, should change in sound or behaviour as the engine revs change.

It sounds more like a bearings or brakes issue. CK to see if the dust cover is rubbing on the rotor somewhere and ck the bearings

I'm not a pessimist. At some point the world sh!ts on everybody. Pretending it ain't sh!t makes you an idiot, not an optimist.
