If a serpentine belt makes noise, there is an issue with one of the idlers, tensioners, pulleys or belt driven accessories. Locate the problem and repair it and the noise will go away. Pay close attention to the belt's alignment.

some cars as far as tightness concern are tighter than usual to the point u think u might break the belt ...i would check for wobble at all pulleys as that would indicate if u have a bearing going bad on that particular one if it wobbles and u may have found your squeal ...

I know it's the power steering pump and the tighter I make it the louder the squeal
