Cold start squeak
Hi Guys,

Gonna try the AU forum first since General is usually rather harsh and search results haven't netted something similar.

Car recently started developing a cold start squeak. Only happens for about 1s during the initial crank and start. The sound only appears during the first second of a start.

Doesn't happen for the rest of the day either, only on the morning start.

Hard to reproduce once it happens in the morning. Even turning it off then back on straight away, the next start is squeak free.

I have attached a video, not sure if it helps. Wondering if its belts / pulleys or the tensioners.

Belts and tensioner pulley and idle pulley off the top of my head, haven't watched the video...

Pull the belts off and check for play/noises.
