    It's possible the tensioner or idler may be bad. You also have a belt for the AC. You may want to check that as well, and the pulleys.

    Agreed. Pull the ac belt and see if it disappears. I hope you didn't replace all that trying to get rid of the noise and it hasn't helped. A solid tensioner fixed my screaming belt

    A can of spray belt dressing will give you temporary relief - however, as posted, it is likely that you have a tensioner or idler pulley on the way out, or your tensioner spring has weakened over time. Also, some belts just squeal no matter what you do. Belt dressing can help you diagnosis and pinpoint the issue as you see how the belts respond to it. FWIW, I would try a Goodyear Gatorback for a replacement belt if given a choice.
