I am new to being a BMW owner and I thank everyone for their help thus far. I have a squeeky noise whenever I start cold engine 8 out of ten times I hear this 5 second squeek...sounds possibly like a door or fresh air inlet opening or closing. Sounds like something that operated by a servo or????
Any help appreciated. I guess I can get someone to start the car and I can listen. But doen't do it all the time or seems after it has been driven?
thanks

Nobodeuno,
I drive 2002 325i Standard.
I have similar sound to what you describe. It starts when I release clutch after starting engine... still in neutral. It sounds like coming from clutch or front and of transmittion. I have no idea where it comes from, but keep bogging dealer. So when it will come out, after the warranty, I will have legitimate complaint to have BMW fix it.
Nevertheless, any thoughts where it could come from? Any early failures with clutch/tranny?
Regards,
Relevart

relevart... sounds like your issue is the throw-out bearing.
nobodueno... give some more description as to approximate location of sound and if outside or in.

ExTech,
I wasn't quite clear:
You step on clutch to start engine, then you "release" pedal, "engaging" clutch. When clutch released squicky sounds lasts about 20 seconds. I would think through out bearing would be heard when clutch is "disengaged"....
Please correct where am I wrong...
Regards,
Relevart

It seems to come from the engine compartment, up high. When its warmer in the mornings it lessens in decibels. Anotherwards it is fainter. I swear it sounds like a air inlet door or something?
Thanks to all everyones help!

I brought my car for service today and mentioned noise again.
Here what I did: I brought car to dealer's service yesturday evening, left it there overnight. Came in the morning today, before they had chance to look at it. Mechanic started car, and funny thing, I usially let clutch go fraction of a second, after car starts, he held it longer... I would here wiered sound right after releasing clutch pedal, in his case sound was still coming with clutch pedal depressed...
Anyhow, they are going to replace belts and belt tensioners, and are saying it is not a timing chain...
Thanks to manufacturer warranty, it won't hirt at all...
