Metal on Metal sound when driving

I'm hearing like a metal on metal rub on my front passenger side while accelerating. Don't do it when braking, or clutching. Rarely heard while idling. It gets slightly louder at faster speeds but the noise doesn't pickup speed. It gets real annoying just hearing it. If you went through a similar problem please share.

Hard to tell from videos. If me, I would jack-up front and crawl around under looking/feeling for anything that might vibrate while moving. One item might be heat shield stuff around exhaust areas. Might not be metal-on-metal, could be under-carriage panels rattle onto something else.

It sounded like brakes to me. Brakes sometimes do funny stuff like this when pads are misaligned. The sound goes away because when you hit the brakes the caliper presses everything together tightly. When you release the brakes, then it will eventually start making the sound again. Floating caliper designs will do this. We're talking about a very tiny amount of space here.

Check everything related to the turning of the wheels that you can check, and you'll find something eventually. Jacking the front up and rotating the wheels might lend you some noises.

Another part- just thought of this- which can do this is the carrier bearing. This is manual transmission only. I only watched the first video, and don't recall which transmission you have. I don't think AT's have carrier bearings, but on the manual there is a bearing on the passenger side axle. The carrier for that bearing can fail along with it's mount. The mount used to be available through Ford, but I think you're stuck looking in junkards now unless Dorman makes one. To replace an actual bearing, you need a new axle.
