Saab Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
have they checked the brakes?
have you duplicated the noise with your mechanic? has he run it in the air to try and find the source?
im not in charge of billing and we are still in info request hat session.. Im gathering info from you in attempt to give you a educated answer. You need to remember Im trying to diagnose a car that I have not seen touched or driven so as much detailed info you can give me is needed
if the noise goes away by stepping on the brakes that tells me its brake related. I would have him check the caliper and look closely at the pads.. The problem lies there
did he replace the pads?
I will contact customer service for you in regards ***** ***** double billing... I personally have none of that info... Im positive if the noise goes away under stopping that its brake pad that is glazed or has a hard spot.. You usually can not see with the naked eye..

if the noise goes away under braking im 100 percent positive its a brake issue... either a dragging caliper or a defective pad.. If you mechanic is stumped with a noise coming from the brakes that goes away when your brake is applied..I think you should have a different mechanic or shop check this... Most shops offer free brake inspections
