    Its the auxiliary drive belt (drives the alternator, air con, vacuum pump, power steering).

    The belt tends to creep a bit on the pulleys when cold, as the rubber is less elastic. Noise should go away after few minutes.

    Nothing to worry about. Would worry a bit if it makes a loud squealing sound.

    Petrol engines may also exhibit this noise.



    Kind of worried that the dealer suggested WD40 on the timing belt. Mildly soapy water is then only thing that should be used.

    WD40 will shorten its life considerably, and if it slips or fails it could result in a trashed engine.
