    hmmm...but the squeal is definitely coming from the engine bay? And is it mainly when idling or all the time?

    If it happens when you are turning it could be your power steering. I had this problem and solved it with Lucas Power Steering Stop Leak. I was not leaking, but it stopped the squealing.

    just had the exact same problem. turned out it was the belt tensioner on the a/c drive...which for some reason cost more than the one for the main belt???

    Yeah I'd check the belts and the idler pully for sure. I got tired of my squeeling so I changed all my pullies and bought 2 gator back belts. No more squeels. I'm sure one of the bearings were still good, but o'well. Problem solved.
