I have a 2018 CVT... and have a noise issue. On a cold start, after driving for 5 mins or so... I get a constant "chirping" belt like sounds in the cabin. Below is the sound recorded. I slightly rev the engine and you can hear it speed up as well. It makes this noise until the engine heats up some... so 10-15 mins at most and then fades away. It's loud enough to hear over talk radio in the cabin.



Popping the hood to try and find it doesn't go far. I can't isolate it among the other engine noises.



This is not the high pitch squeal that the blower motor causes (and i had replaced). The sound occurs with the cabin fan off.



While getting the blower fan replaced, the dealer was able to replicate the sound since i had left the car there over night, but by the time they drive it back and get under the hood, it's fading already.



Anyone else getting this issue!?

If I even suspected transmission wine I would immediately do a drain and fill of the transmission fluid.
I’m getting it done on the outback at 60K km.
