Dust shield for the brakes right? anyway I have a few ideas that it might be. Wheel bearing, did you give the wheel a good shake from side to side and top to bottom? Tone ring for abs might be cracked and is scraping around. CV boot might be rubbing or is loose making noise. And last but not least and hopefully it's not CV joint. Good Luck!

Check the drive shaft and see if the shield around it is rubbing on it

Does it only make the noise when the vehicle is rolling? When brakes applied? If when rolling check the hub bearings, if equipped in that year, the 2003 has them.
