Default Irritating squeal

I'm sure this is a simple problem but I can't seem to find the solution.
I'm hearing a real annoying squeal. It's not as loud as a bad belt but it's real annoying. A real light squeak/squeal. Kind of like a bird chirping. The noise appears randomly but never when I'm at a stop. However, it appears when I am accelerating. It happens more often when I let go of the gas and shift to neutral. But when I start to break it goes away. I thought it was the pulley from the alternator so I got it rebuilt and the sound was still there. I even replaced the idle pulley (even though I already knew t wouldn't be it, I gave it a shot) Help!!

Worn brake pads?

Could be brake caliper sticking a tiny bit, warped rotor, body flex making seals squeak, bushings on control arms... is it worse on bumpier roads, does it go away at different speeds, is it a regular pulsing noise? I'd guess that it's pad/rotor or bushing on a control arm. Given that there's zero sound when you're at a stop, it's very unlikely in the mechanicals to me.

Any way you can get a video of this if possible so we can get a better idea? It can be difficult to isolate something like this without seeing/hearing the car in person but I'm sure we could help!!

You may be right. I messed around with it today and noticed when I ride on the break very lightly, it begins to squeal. It also squeals on rough rodes. I'll take a better look into it this weekend. Thanks.

I tried posting a video but the sound of the air blocks out the squeal since it only happens when I'm in motion.

Got it! As much as I hate to say it I might recommend getting a couple different opinions if you're able to do so. It could be something really small! Take a look locally if you can to get another set of ears on it!

If the noise goes away when your breaking it sounds like brake pads are worn out! the pads have a little piece of metal on them when the pad wears this makes contact with the rotor

Most likely is a brake issue, usually due to worn pads. A visual inspection and you can tell right away.
