Angry Squeaking idler pulley driving me crazy!!!

Hey guys. My Idler pulley decided it was going to start squeaking worse today. It was making a squeak on start-up, now it squeaks for awhile until it warms up a little. It only squeaks if it has been sitting in the hot sun, but still this noise has got to go.

Anyways, my question. I would very much rather change the pulley on my own, rather than put everything back to stock for a damn pulley So does anyone know exactly which pulley needs replacing? And perhaps a diagram of it

Any info would be VERY much appreciated. I am tired of the neighbors looking at me, and wondering why my brand new truck is squeaking already

Traded.. 03 6.0 PSD For..

Running Spartan Tunes AFE PG 7, Flo Pro 4" DP Back, thanks to Cobb's Diesel. It has been great so far.

I'm sure it wouldn't hurt to spray wd-40 on one pulley then the next one (not the alternator) and see when it stops. Then you know which one

That's not a bad idea. However, there was a TSB released regarding this issue. So I imagine it would describe exactly which pulley it is on the documentation

Check the tensioner first, look at it thru the rs wheel well, should be evenly gapped.

I did get a chance to look over the truck as best as I could. I checked the tensioner, I don't think it is that one causing the noise Does anybody know which pulley it is that gets replaced under the TSB?
