Screeching pulleys

When I start my EB I6 up in the morning if I haven't driven it for a couple of days this horrible screeching sound emits from the front of the motor for about 30 seconds and then stops once I drive off down the road. I've had the idler pulley thingy (TM) replaced recently and the noise hasn't changed. Seems to only do it when car is cold. Any ideas?


You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I too think its loose belts because my father and I changed the belt around the alternator on his ford ute which made the noise beforehand. We made it a little tighter and the noise went away.
