SOURCE: change serpentine belt and tension pulley and idle pulley and

could be the alternator, water pump
take the belt and spin all the pulleys and listen for noise and make sure they turn smoothly
another trick is to take a can of wd40 or equivalent and spray the bearings 1 at a time till the noise goes away or quiets down

The chirp is from scale or a glaze on one of the pulleys. If not black or shiney in color clean it with brake cleaner and spray some belt dressing on the pulleys

SOURCE: I changed idler pulley and tension pulley with

what kind of belt did you use
I found that the Goodyear Gator belt usually resolves this noise as compared to some cheap store brand belts

second...did you test ALL the pulleys when you had the belt off

maybe your noise is coming from a different pulley

I have a chirping or bearing sounding noise, that I am trying to isolate on my daughters college car. Sound varies with RPM.


Get an inexpensive mechanics stethoscope and put the end on the shaft part of idler pulleys, housing near bearings of alternator and water pump etc.
If that doesn't give clear results, try squirting a little water on the serpentine belt as if runs [a length of small drip irrigation hose works really well to get a little water on the belt]. The water will provide harmless temporary lubrication to the belt and change the sound if it is caused by the belt slipping.

Item Part Number Description 1 8620 Drive Belt 2 10300 Generator Pulley 3 6C348 Idler Pulley 4 6B209 Drive Belt Tensioner 5 3D673 Power Steering Pump Pulley 6 2E884 A/C Clutch Pulley 7 6A312 Crankshaft Vibration Damper Pulley 8 8A528 Water Pump Pulley
s1w~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: The drive belt tensioner has no provision for adjustment and will be damaged if forced to travel beyond its operating range. Automatic tensioners are calibrated at the factory to provide the correct amount of tension to the belt. There is no need to check tensioners for proper tension.
NOTE: Drive belts (8620) with automatic drive belt tensioner (6B209) do not require adjustment.
NOTE: When a drive belt is installed new or reinstalled after a service procedure, the drive belt does not fully seat into pulley grooves until engine has run for several minutes.
This vehicle is equipped with:
  • a V-ribbed serpentine accessory drive belt.
  • automatic drive belt tensioners.
New drive belts should be of the same type as originally installed.
Drive belt chirp is a regularly occurring chirping noise that occurs due to:
  • pulley misalignment.
  • excessive pulley runout.
It can be a result of a damaged pulley or an incorrectly replaced pulley that was not correctly aligned.
To correct drive belt chirp:
  • determine the area where the noise comes from.
  • check each of the pulleys in that area with a straightedge to the crankshaft pulley (6312) for front accessory drive and the water pump drive pulley to the water pump.
  • look for the accessory pulley to be out of position in the fore/aft direction or at an angle to the straightedge.
Drive belt squeal is an intermittent noise that occurs when the drive belt slips on a pulley during certain conditions such as:
  • engine start-up.
  • rapid engine acceleration.
  • A/C clutch engagement.
Drive belt squeal can occur under the following conditions:
  • The A/C discharge pressure goes above specifications:
    • The A/C system is overcharged.
    • The A/C condenser airflow is blocked.
