Hello! I am the owner of a 2005 Saab 9-3 Linear Convertible, and I can't seem to locate where this weird noise is coming from. It is not noticeable from inside the cabin with the windows up, but with the top down or from outside you can hear it loud and clear. When accelerating, a loud and continuous metallic ringing/chiming noise comes from the front of the car. The sound lasts for the first few seconds of accelerating. After the engine warms up, the sound seems to go away except if you accelerate quickly (like when going up a highway on-ramp). The oil levels of the car are just fine, and it has been recently changed. The car runs great other than this odd noise. I've searched around the forum a bit to find a similar problem, but no luck. Thanks for the help!
