There is a spring loaded belt tensioner. They are famous for getting stuck. Remove belt with special tool. Replace belt and tensioner. Not an easy job as not much room to work.

Toyota 2005 Corolla Squeaking belts and belts have already been replaced 2 yrs ago

Probably the belts just need to be tightened, and this should eliminate the squealing. However, you should check them thoroughly for signs of wear or cracking.

Belt squeaking on nissan murano / do you tighten??

they may not be your problem,find out why you had to replace the belts in the first place.If it was time and they did not squeak and now they do, I would take it back and allow the shop to make it right,nobody is perfect,give them another try then make a judgement call.they might know what to do and you will be very happy.
