High pitch sound (belt?)

When starting the car (cold), you can hear a high pitch sounds. Sounds like the belt. This happened last winter also, but the dealer said they couln't detect it. Anyone has this problem?

The thing is that's tough to reproduce it when the car is warm

It's actually low steering fluid. Sounds odd but it was exactly what mine was. All fixed now
