    Try to be a little more specific on the problem if you are looking for help.

    Where is it coming from exactly? Try to pin-point the location.
    When does it occur? Does it do it ALL the time, or only under certain driving conditions?
    What type of "squealing" noise is it?

    Answer these questions and come back with some more info.

    Pigs usually squeal on their way to the slaughter house.

    Wife's: '05 SRR 2.5RS 5MT Sport Wagon

    The Knack. It's a rare condition characterized by an extreme intuition about all things mechanical and electrical ... and utter social ineptitude.

    its comming from the engine bay and ony happens at startup and normally goes away after a few moments. the temperature out side seems to have someting to do with it also. the colder it is the longer it happens for. and it only stars when i engage the clutch. it sometimes happens in idle but only everyonce in a while.

    I have the same thing. Someone suggested it could be the throw-out bearing.
