I actually have the same issue, an incessant chirpping, mainly when it's cold and/or wet outside. It was doing the same thing last year and I replaced the tensioner pulley and the belt. The other pulleys all seemed fine. No play and would free spin. I was always told never to use "belt conditioner" on them to quiet them down. After having to clean the pulleys after this was done, I see why.
Is it ok to try WD40 or something like PB Blaster in this type of situation, or will it just aggravate the situation?
