Turns out, I can post images here after all. So, this is what I meant: this
first picture is the driveshaft of the wheel that makes the noise (see the
rust where I circled it) - passenger side.

And the other one (driver side) is much more clean:

I don't know if it has any significance at all - I have it scheduled for a
dealership visit again next week, will post what they find.

Any luck figuring out what it was? Were you able to fix it? I am having the
same issue now.

Yeah, I did figure it out. It was the damn tire all along. The dealership was
just being difficult and played dumb so they don't have to replace the tire.
So I took my business elsewhere. The tire eventually needed replacement
anyway. It got replaced and the noise went away.
