Is it coming from the engine? I had that sound coming from a wheel and it was a TPMS sensor.

Is it while the vehicle is running or not? That may sound like a foolish qestion but the VANOS actuator system will function when the vehicle is stopped and can make some grinding or rattling noises. Drove me nuts until it was replaced.
