What make impreza is it the drive belt runs the power steering and alternator and you have another belt for air con you can just tighten them cause they a bit loose and with the cold morings the moisture gets into it more hence the squeal but if it was my car id replace the belts v cheap and you get another 20k miles roughly with that have a look at ''technical sect'' to download a scooby manual so you can do it yourself if you want hope it helps................
