Help Squealing - Not suspension or fan belt

In the last few weeks my car has developed an intermittent sqealing. It only happens when i initially put my foot on the gas pedal, lasts a couple/few seconds then stops till i next press.

It's not the sqealing suspension, cos it was making that noise before. It's a new sqeal. I thought it may be the fan belt starting to go, but i just had my 60K service (done early) last friday and asked them to check it. They found it to be fine and could not even hear the squealing i was talking about ! (typical)

It does not happen on start up either which you would expect if it was the fan belt. I really need to sort this out, as even though it's not too loud at the mo, combined with my sqealing suspension, it's doing my head in !

Help !

Re: Squealing - Not suspension or fan belt

I had something similar on my 145. It did it mostly when cold and turned out to be the clutch release bearing. Not sure if this is an issue with 156's but mine eventually stopped doing it (I was not prepared to pay for a new clutch unless absolutely necessary so left it for a while). There were some posts on the 145 forum about using a silicon spray to lubricate the bearing, but I never got round to trying it.

Perhaps one of the idlers giving warning signs.
