I was driving the 9-3 'vert alongside a concrete wall (which reflects sound well) and noticed a light metallic rubbing-type noise coming from one of the passenger side wheels. Based upon past experience with other cars, I thought it was a brake heat shield rubbing the rotor, since it seemed like cyclical, light intensity contact. I pulled over and felt all the brake rotor heat shields with my hand. They were cold to the touch.

So, now I need to ask...what kind of sound do the Saab wheel bearings make when they're dying? Is that common? Any other ideas? Maybe a sticky caliper? (But the brakes didn't feel too warm.)
