Mein Auto: 1994 525i
Missing fuse/weird noise 94 525i

So my rear fog lights aren't working, and I found that I'm missing fuse #8 in the engine bay, I went to put another fuse in and the metal contacts inside the fuse box are missing for that spot. Also there's an unusual noise coming from the passenger side of the engine bay. It almost sounds like feedback on a speaker, nothing causes it to happen, it happens at random times and has random durations, it's also decently loud. It'll happen when the car is moving, sitting still, and even when the car is off. Any suggestions with the fuse/noise?

Your fuse number 8 missing is normal.
So do you have a 3 position fog switch? Or do you have a 2 position switch (this includes the off position)?
The sounds you are hearing IMO are the external vents closing/opening they also do it while driving, or your car is german version of christine.
