Belt noise issue

My new F350 is a great truck. Quick startup, quiet and clean.

I have only 350 miles on the truck and it started having a very annoying belt squeal when cold. The service guys were going to replace the belt (apparently a big process) when they got word not to perform any repairs to fix this.

I got a copy of an oasis printout from the service department that stated "Some 2006-2008 super duty vehicles with a diesel engine may exhibit a belt noise on cold engine start up. The noise is often described as a chirp or squeal. If normal FEAD noise diagnostics do not resolve concerns, do not perform any repairs. This concern is under investigation, monitor oasis for updates".

No information was given as to a time line for fixing this. I find the oasis report strange as it applies to 2006 to 2008 6.0 and 6.4 liter engines. If it has been an issue for this long, why isn't it fixed? Why do the different engines have the same unsolvable problem? Is Ford just snowing us to avoid the cost of replacing the belt?

Any thoughts or information would be greatly appreciated.

I have it to!!!!! been waiting to say something. I have 1100 miles on it now. It only does it when I 1st start up in am!!! lets keep this post going on this and track it and see what they do for each of us....ok. and thanks for posting this, i have been wondering about it. I think its a design - pully miss- allignment, we will probebly never get rid of it!!!!! hey if it only does on start up and thats ALL that ever goes wrong ill be happy. the only thing i hate is ford haters at the camp sites will love it when i start up and make that chirp... chirp.....chirp. they will go "hey what's that" I'll tell them shut up you know what that is....oh well.

It is not very loud and can not be heard in the cab.start the truck up in the am and then immediatly listen outside the eng compt and see if u hear a slight "chirp-chirp-chirp-chirp" it goes away afetr about 3-4 minets.
