Default 2012 Alto Squealing on Cold Start

Hi all.

I get about 10 seconds of shrill squealing on a cold start in my Suzuki Alto (automatic, 2012). I'm guessing it'll be the fan belt (not had a chance to put my head under the bonnet to pin point exactly where it's coming from), but thought I'd ask in here first in case anyone had any other thoughts?

If it is the fan belt, has anyone seen any online guides to changing it? I've swapped belts before in much older cars, and I'm fairly technical, so I'm confident enough to give it a go. Just that it'd be reassuring to have a guide to follow as I did it

Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer!

its going to be the belt, pretty simple to change, if you're not sure of things, take a few pics and draw a diagram of where it routes before you start.
