belts and shift linkage tbs

tonight im dropping my car off to get serviced while its still under warranty. one of the things im having checked out is the squealing belts. i already have the tbs for it and i know what the problem is. but i was wondering if there is any way i can describe it so they def fix it and not wait until it gets worst. (as of now it only squeals when its cold and wet until the engine warms up) i also want them to grease my shift linkage as it squeaks in 1st, 2nd and reverse. is there a tbs for this problem, because i have noticed others with the same problem on the board.

Don't just assume that the problems your are having are directly related to the TSB's. Sometimes new/different problems are found that can be similar to those you are having. i can also assure you that the techs at your dealer have all of the info ( including all of the updates that we have yet to get our filthy little hands on) about your car. If you want to let the dealer know exactly what the problem is, ask to go on a test drive with the technician. People do it all the time at the dealership i work at. Best of all you can show the tech the exact problem. As for the squeeky belt, you may have to leave your car there for the day. Maybe even over night so they can start it first thing in the morning when there's enough moisture in the air to get that belt to squeel. Good luck. Remember this. Be nice to the service writer and techs. Just like anyone else in the world, if you DEMAND something from them, you are less likely to get what you need. smile
