Pull the front wheels off and inspect the whole assemblies. Anything that is rattling might be easy to find with tthe car jacked up. It is possible the clips that keep the brake pads from rattling might be the problem.
I am leaning to something other than the brake pads making the rattling noise.

If you need new brake pads.. I'd say replace those... and make sure everything is sound.. and in good tight order.. and drive it... if it still does it.. take it off.. and search around...

It should be obvious once you get the wheel off and push around..

Good Luck,

Les
