Default cam belt / timing belts

Hello just another question

I recently got my timing / cam belt changed but car makes a squeaky sound from the engine bay every time the car is pulling off in low gears. The garage told me you got to wear the belt in and noise would disappear but after covering 800 miles the car still makes that sound. Should the belt take that long to wear in or have the garage placed the wrong belt in the car so confused.

when replacing the timing belt, all drive belts have to be removed. It sounds like one is loose. The screeching sound normally means a belt is slipping(not the timing belt since that one has teeth). I highly doubt they put the wrong timing belt as that will not allow you to turn on the engine.

yeah, it sounds like one of the accessory belts is loose, like the alternator belt.

Yup. Alternator belt.
