Is it when you have your heater or a/c fan on? Try turning it off and if the sound goes away you need to have a belt replaced. There's a TSB on this issue.

Mine squeeks when it's raining as well. After the car warms up it stops (usually). It's real bad sitting in the garage and tapping the gas. Sounds horrible. Every time I take it somewhere to have it looked at, the car warms up enough to stop squeeking, so they find nothing wrong frown

If I push the clutch in about 1cm (not actually disengaging) all the squeeking stops. That's what I call wierd. Soon as I let it back out it starts up again.

Seems to have nothing to do with AC on/off.
