Belts making noise when cold start up.

I has this problem for quite a while now, everytime i start up my car in the morning or whenever the car is cold, there's then this noise coming from one of the belts , its been a bit louder and louder, and when the car is warm, the noise is less noticeable. I'm wondering which belt could it be and is this bad?

Re: Belts making noise when cold start up.

Could be any of the belts. Take a look at them and see if they are cracked, dried out or burned up. If so they need replaced. If they look ok then check the tension by pushing on the belt at the point where the length between the pulleys is the longest. Should move no more than about a half an inch. If it moves more than a half an inch than the belt needs tightened.
