Question about 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GTS CVT Sedan
Have you tried tightening the belt adjustment on that belt system. Usually there is a belt tensioner inline with the belt and a little more tension could stop the squeak or whine.

this pulley is still being hold by another bolt. it is a long one that is horizontal and can be access by a deep long socket wrench from the radiator side.
i hope you can find it.

It will only work one way, so you might have to do some experimenting.
The side of the belt with 'traction' will always touch pulleys with groves or traction of their own. The smooth pulleys are for tension and will press against the smooth side of the belt.
This is from a different car, but might give you some idea:
I suggest purchasing a manual for your vehicle, or going to the auto parts store and thumbing through one.

the tensioner pulley is spring loaded to maintain proper tension constantly.if your belt is loose cracked or frayed,replace it.if tensioner isn't working,replace tensioner assembly.
