The pulley you are referring to probably is the idler assembly. If it is noisy, it may have to be replaced.

Don't use a "belt dressing"...
There may be oil or other substance on the pulleys.
Remove belt and clean all pulleys .. inspect belt for contamination from those pulleys.
That should do it!

I found the diagram in my owner's manual.
I replaced the belt on mine just 2 days ago. All you need to do is remove one bolt from the lower motor mount and remove the spacer. After you relieve the belt tensioner, the belt will slip right through the gap. Don't forget to support the engine before removing the bolt. As a backup I took a photo of the belt with my digital camera beforehand... just in case.
