    2008 S3. Cold engine, intermittent squeak when ticking over.

    Hope fully someone is in the know with this one, any ideas?
    When engine is cold and turned on ticking over there is a squeak that is coming from the engine bay.
    It does stop after a while but to be honest only a couple of times its been sat ticking over for any amount of time for that to happen.
    Cheers

    Welcome to the site.

    Maybe a belt/pulley combo, had the same myself, not to say its the same issue yourself, but I know I changed an aux belt for someone & it cured an almighty annoying squeaking noisy, try temp removing the aux belt & see if on startup it is still present.
