Anyone had a water pump replaced on an 2004 or similar? There is a bearing/ballance chain whining noise the dealer says is normal with that year car because where its installed, IS THAT TRUE?

Tell us more about the noise.

Water pump will usually weep before the outer bearing goes. I'd be really worried about other bearings, and how anyone managed to damage them! Not commonplace on this car.

Great, thats what I was afraid of... So go back 2 same wackjob dealer? Go to another one? Write letter to Saab? Go independant dealer? What should i do now? its been making the noise for over 3 weeks now without change. Its a whinney sound directly related to RPM. its like a kazoo type sound or those party favors you blow on newyears that make that zinging sound? HELP
