As far as I know the guy told me he had the belt changed at the same time, I have the old idler and tensioner in the box behind the seat.

had the belt off today, cleaned all the pulleys and took a brush to the groves. Cleaned all the belt dressing off.

The only other thing I can think of, is on mine the driver side intercooler pipe is close to the power steering pulley. Check the clearance there. If it all looks good I would throw a new belt on and see how it goes.

Squeaks are caused by misalignment between two pulleys. The pulley "leading" the shortest span is usually the one out of alignment, causing the squeak.

Anyone know the correct belt size for a early 99 single alternator with (cold weather package)? The belt I have on the rig, the one they said they replaced specs at 122.91 pretty sure thatís the wrong size and itís slipping.

I went with the dayco green heavy duty belt. You can find it around $40 on Amazon. I also replaced all my pulleys with OEM, no issues 30K miles later.
