Squeaking belt

My 02 TL-S has this problem where when I start the car when it's cold there is this loud squeaking noise coming from the passenger side where the belts are at. After the car warms up the noise goes away. What could it be? Thanks in advance.

a worn out belt, the main belt tensioner failing, the ps belt not tightened correctly
(caution: it does need more play than a normal belt)

The funny thing is that this started after getting my oil changed at Jiffy Lube. Could something they did while doing inspections cause this? I know they inspected the belts.

I am having this issue on cold mornings as well - sounds like either a belt or maybe a bearing squeal - I had all belts/ idlers/tensioner, water pump, seals, etc. changed out when I had the timing belt service done 2 yrs ago @ 101k mi. Now at only 113k miles.

Ideas?

Miles mean less than age. Was the belt a honda belt or a autoparts store belt?

It doesnt sound like a Belt Tensioner problem... By looking in the video the PS Belt looks like the "Mitsuboshi" OEM.. but I dunno about the ACC belt.
IMO Use only OEM I had a Gatorback in there sometime ago and It did squeal alot...

All parts for the timing belt replacement, including all belts, idler(s?), tensioner, seals, water pump, etc, were Acura OEM - only 2 yrs ago and about 12k miles since the install. Belts look fine and tension "appears" correct. Wonder if it might be alternator or power steering pump bearing? Noise is only when cold.
