squealing noise

every time the engine was turned on it would make a squealing noise, I had a new fan belt put in and the noise stopped, it has recently started again. A friend said it might be that one of the pulleys that the belt goes around as the sound comes from the left of the engine as your looking at it, does anyone know the cost of having this fixed. cheers.

Squeeling belt

Have you ever changed the serpentine belt(accessory belt). This is what usually squeels when it is worn out. I have had to change a couple of times with my SC on. Its not too hard to change it if you have worked around your engine before.
