You can try the soapy water on the belt to see if it stops. If it does that means the belt is bad.

Squeaky cold till warm is pulley. Bearings finally heat up and are ok.
Just get a new one, they're cheap.

ALSO, soapy water means belt? No. Sure, you're putting water only on the belt. But think, if you make it wet, you lower the friction between the belt and pulley ever so slightly. So if your pulley is dragging because of bad bearings, you're actually letting the belt slip over the pulley allowing the pulley to spin slower and not squeak anymore

Re: Idler pulley question

Take it off, pop the bearing out, and replace the bearing. Don't bother buying the whole pulley.

Most of the time you can read a number on the bearing, I've gotten them from advanced, napa, and other independent auto parts houses. Probably no more than $5-8.
