Pulleys today have sealed bearing and must be replace, so no lube.

Thank you both. I'll get back with you after I find out what the dealer says.

Dirt or liquids get on one of the pulleys. Just drive for awhile. If still squeaking try spray lube, belt dressing, soap, or pee on it. I'm serious...one of these liquids will alter or remove the noise. It's a bit too early for it to be a pulley bearing....
