Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1999 Saab 9-3 turbo and every time the radiator fan comes on, it makes a high-pitched whining sound...could this be a belt or the fan itself?

Yeah, either worn belt or slack in the wheel housing on the fan. It might be a problem over time so I recomend you to bring it in ;)
