    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.
