hi-my Saab 9-3 has developed a knocking or noise from the front wheels that sounds like something is lose. I can also hear a squeal intermittently.
What do you think the problem is: wheel bearing? track rod? steering bushes? and how do I work out what the problem is?

Could be any of the parts you suggest or even driveshaft .Only way to find fault is to get it checked out for excessive wear / play on each component .

If noise is a heavy " clicking " it usually is caused by driveshaft c/v joint worn .It can usually be replicated by driving car round on full lock on both sides , thereby loading possible worn joint .
