If you are using a proper belt lube and it still squeals, you should look for something like a dragging component such as an alternator or power steering pump that may be defective.

Serpentine belt on 2006 Ford Taurus SEL squealing.

The belt has most likely moved either in or out on the bottom pulley. Check it first. I had the same problem it looked ok but was out one groove missleading designed pulley.

My 2007 avalon squeals every time I put the AC on? What should I do?

Make sure its simply not the A/C tensioner thats gone bad. You might just have to replace that one. There's absolutely no reason a belt should be the culprit unless it is tearing or ripped so you can look for wear and tear on the belts. Most likely a pulley is out of alignment or the pulley bearing is just starting to squeal when it gets wet. But it can still squeal if its dry outside.

Take the belt off and spin it with your hand, if it squeaks, its bad. I had to replace one years ago, they just go bad. Make sure the A/C compressor isn't whats squealing too, and the other top pulleys too. Sometimes you can be fooled on where the squeal is really coming from. Spin everything that can be spun, by hand.

Every time I start my car, I have a loud squeal that sounds like it may be coming from either the water pump, or the A/C pump. We had the belts changed not that long ago, and soon after it started...

a few different things can be happening- your idler pulley may need to be lubed- your belt tensioner may need to be replaced- your a/c clutch may need to be lubed- or the belt itself may not be a perfect fit or is slightly(not visible at a glance)be misaligned - if the squeal goes away after driving for awhile i would thing to check the items with LUBE. if it continues all the time- suggest to your mechanic- to remove belt and check idler pulley,belt tensioner and a/c clutch by hand spinning and excess play in the bearings. good luck

Is it possible that the belt tensioner is the cause for the squeal or possibly the belt itself needs to be replaced. Although not impossible, the lower pulley usually is not the cause for belt squeal, unless it is damaged.

The belt in my 01 Dodge Dakota squeals badly. Started when I had my power steering pump replaced. I tried changing the belt and the tensioner, but still squeals. Is it possible the pulley on the power...

excess mechanical drag from the pump can cause the belt to slip and squeal, but before focusing on the pump I'd check the condition, tension and alignment of the belt. I might even try cleaning all the pulleys with an aerosol brake cleaner and install a new belt, particularly if the current one has more than 50,000 miles on it. It might be that the squeal is coming from or caused by a different belt-driven accessory.
A more typical noise from a power-steering pump is a high-pitched whine, not a squeal. Usually, if the steering wheel is stationary, meaning that the steering rack is not "asking" for assistance from the high-pressure fluid from the pump, there's little or no noise

You didn't mention the alternator, power steering pump, or water pump. In fact, any pulley other than the crankshaft one can have a bad bearing or dry seal. Remove the belt and spin each pulley while listening for any rough noise or squeal. If it was the crankshaft, it might be time to check the oil. Start the engine with the belt off to see if it does squeal. Make sure the noise isn't coming from the radiator fan(s).

Squealing NOISE possibly from fan belt

Belts stretch from new. Try to tighten them again. Hopefully the are not glazed or this may stay with you.
