I'm experiencing an engine noise that only seems to be apparent when the engine is cold started on a nice cold day. Once the temperature warms up or the engine warms up it goes away. It sounds like it is coming from the passenger side of the engine where the serpentine belt is but not sure as to where exactly. The water pump was replaced @48k miles and the car now has 52k miles.
I have tried to provide a short sound clip of the noise if anyone has any ideas as to what the problem could be I would greatly appreciate it. Just not sure if it's something I should be concerned about or not.

Likely the idler/tensioner pulley bearing. My 13' had that when cold starting around 70k miles. I continued to drive it to 105k and never had to replace it, it only made the noise when cold or damp out.

What I'd say also^^^^ To the OP, remove the belt & I'd bet it goes away
