If the belts are worn, it's best to replace them which will usually eliminate the noise once installed and adjusted properly. Conversely, if they are new and squeal, verify the grooves on the pulleys line up correctly. My alternator pulley was slightly out of alignment which caused an annoying squeal and premature wear on the belt until I corrected the issue.
