Default Rhythmic sound from some where...

Techies,
One of my fried who has a Palio 1.2, has some problem. Tuesday, he had a coolant drain out, flat tyre and some rhythmic sound coming out of somewhere.

Coolant, issue got sorted out, culprit, a rusted dummy plug which had developed a hole and let go all the coolant.

This fliping sound is becoming hard to solve. Javali motors told that they have checked, the wheel bearing, half shaft, breaks, etc.. everything is fine but the sound still persists. Their speculation is " there are 3 bearings inside the gearbox, one of them may be shot. They need to open the gear box to find this problem"

I am growing concerned. Can just a flippoing sound get so serious. Any thoughts, out of the box ideas before opening the box are appreciated..

Please help.

Thanks

Rotate the tyres and see if nature of sound chages.
Best way is to cruise at 60-80kmph in neutral on a quiet road with windows rolled up.
If its flip flop kinda rythemic, the belt inside the tyre could be shot.

Does the car wobble slightly at low speeds on smooth roads(10kmph)? and gets okay at higher speeds?

Is this a clicking sound? Do you get it when you press on throttle and then let it go immediately? If that is the case it could indeed be the gearbox mainshaft bearing(s).

i am just guessing could be some thing has got into the rubber boot in drive shafts / cv. try moving wheels on a hoist / jack to see if sound persists.

Check your front brakes and see if the discs are fine.
