    If i have used the car, then it is cooling for a short time and i start it, There is a noisey / squeaking coming from what sounds like a belt? Timing belt? This was changed 10k ago?

    Car is a 2004 1.9 tdi. Can anyone offer me advice before I take it to a garage, Cheers

    just for your peace of mind mate,

    leave the car on tick over and use WD40 to spray all the moving fan belts that are open to veiw, be carful as it will spray oil off the belts a bit but this will cure any dry belts and stop the squeak / squeal !

    It is what any garage will do without the labour charge!!! If it still squeals then wait for sbhoy's answer.
