Howie is an unknown quantity at this point
Can anyone advise me about the high pitch noise my car makes on cold mornings? Every morning when the egine is cold on a cold morning there is belt noise for about a minute as the engine warms. The local dealership has been told about the belt noise everytime the car has been to them for a service or anything else, but they have never managed to fix it. A friend who used to be a BMW mechanic says it could e the self adjusters which are not working correctly if the oil in them is cold, and after a minute the oil is warm enough for them to work.

Any adivce would be really appreciated...

Belt tensioner...common E46 problem. Easy fix. Change the mechanical belt tensioner and replace with a hydraulic tensioner.
