Those of you with the squeaky belt that will not go away, try this.

I had just replaced my power steering pump and regained a loud belt squeak around the power steering pulley. Noticed that the pulley for the pump was seated way to deep on the pump, causing the belt to go from alt to idle pulley to PS pulley crooked. Hence, causing the loud squeak that would not go away. I used the pulley puller to move the pulley out a bit and alleviate the rubbing of the belt grooves and sides on the pulley and eliminating my squeak.

I had squeaking on my 3100 because the belt tensioner totally seized up. She would start to squeak whenever there was any large strain on the accessory belt at idle (ie AC on or rear defog on, and hence stressing the alternator).

Or if you just have an old belt that starts to squeak try some die-electric grease. works wonders!!
