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.
