Hello Automender12345,

Most of the time, the squeaking only happens the first time the car is started during the day.
For example, if I start&drive the car in the morning, I will hear the noise. Later, if I start&drive the car again, the noise doesn't happen.

I have ordered the part from RockAuto and will report back with my findings.

Thank you all!
