I just got mine to stop doing it after 3 annoying months of listening to the squeal. New belt didn't solve the problem, so I listened with a stethoscope and found that the squeal was coming from the tensioner. I bought a new tensioner pulley for $50, installed in 5 minutes, and have not had the noise for 3 weeks.
