    Default 2.0t twittering cold start/wet

    noticed it on mine now... been doing it since i got the car and vx just said it was a the belt that was noisy etc..well out of warranty now, but is it worth changing the belt..deffo drivers side and near the belt that the twittering is coming from...
    any idea on cost of parts and the cost of fitting or time to do?..
    it dissapears after 10 mins or so after engine is warm but bl00dy annoying!!..
    could do ith getting it looked at..might get it done when it goes in for service in the next few weeks if its not gonna break the bank..
