the rubbing could be a wheel bearing.

or the handbrake.
If it is the handbrake:
Put the car in neutral and roll back at about 1-3 MPH and hit the handbrake hard. Not fast enough to where your tires chirp, but enough to be a hard stop.
That oughta fix it... maybe not but it does the trick every time for me.

Once you fill it up, don't worry if it leaks a small amount from time to time.. I have a friend who is a Rolls Royce mechanic (he also works on BMW, Porches, Mercedes, etc..) And he says that differentials in german cars will do that. Its normal.

no a wheel bearing may not always make noise that you will notice. my buddies 328 had a blown wheel bearing (really blown) and it would only make noise at cetain speeds .
