James and Chris, thanks for the input. I think the bearings are of the sealed type. The wiring I found behind the dust cap is probably some ABS stuff. I'm not 100 pst shure, but it looks that way. So, I figure a trip to the local Saab garage will be the safest solution to my problem. Sooner or later the bearing will break down, and as you all know, things always happen one or two days before you are ready to set out on your holiday ;-) -- Johan Chris Ault wrote: > James H. E.
