    Hey all, my 2008 tc with 181k has been making a squeaky sound when it's cold outside. Sounds like a belt. I've never replaced any belts on the car. Any thoughts?

    well.. how many miles on the drive belt? If it's 181k, you deserve an award! I think the longest they go is around 100k miles. And the belt tensioner is usually around that mileage. But you could just replace the belt and see if that fixes it, without going to all the trouble of replacing the tensioner.

    I personally like Gates brand of belts, been using those on my tC for awhile now, no complaints so far.
