Just wondering if anyone on here has ever experienced this issue?

On staring the car, as the starter motor is turning over, I can hear a slight squeal, almost like a fan belt type squealing noise, only lasts about a second, the car starts fine and the noise stops once the car has started.

Hasn't really bothered me too much yet, but would like to catch it before in case it develops into a more serious issue.

Car will be going to a garage in the next 2 weeks anyway to get new discs and pads fitted so will get it checked out then, but just wanted to maybe get an idea of what the squealing issue was too.

Had a similar noise on mine,believe it was the starter motor "drying out",the dealer told me. He drove an A3 3.2,and his did the same. Replaced it,and a couple of years later,I have the sound again,will have to take it off & apply some strategic grease!

I have a 06 plate DSG with 74k on the clock and mine does exactly the same I would be interested to know what the fault is if you get it sorted

Mine is a 55 , its caused by the starter motor push rod seizing I took the started off and sprayed wd40 in and touch wood 5000 miles later its as silent as .

Mines just started this evening, screeches for a second after start.
I'm guessing it's the starter motor not disengaging fast enough.
Never took a starter motor off before.
Is it a pain to get to?
I work 7 days a week ATM so don't want to start a job I can't finish.
Thanks
Dan

Mine is still doing this since my August 13 post but absolutely no issues so far. A local VW specialist said it was quite normal for them to do this! Not sure though!
