Squeaky noise

Alright so I've started having an issue when it's really cold or damp/wet outside and I start my car in the morning, it gives me a high pitch squeak. I've researched a bit and it says it could be a belt or pulley or something of that nature but I have no clue. It goes away within about 10 mins of driving, and it won't come back again until it sits overnight and rains. And if it doesn't rain or get damp, it'll never do it.. And to me it does sound like a belt... Opinions?

Change your belt out with a new one and if it still does it its probably a bearing in one of the pulleys.

Awesome I'll be doing that asap. And if it isn't the belt, how would I go about narrowing down which pulley it is?

Bringing this thread back to life real quick...

Finally changed my belt, the old one wasn't even that bad

Started it up and it started a minor squeak that wasn't identical to the one I had when I had the old belt on, so does this mean its definitely a bearing in a pulley or what?

The squeak was really bad when driving, and it wasn't a rapid one it had a few seconds between each squeak, but never did it at idle and after about 10-15 mins driving it went away but it always reoccurs in the morning when its cold or rainy

Whats the next move I should be making

I had a squeak in my car. I thought it was tensioner pulley so I bought a new one. Turns out it was my water pump. So I bought a new water pump and changed the new pulley while I was at it and the squeak went away.

Just wiggle the pulleys to find out. They shouldn't have any slack or play or wiggle room in them. If they do that's prolly it

Serpentine belt squeaks can be frustrating. I'm trying to figure one out on my truck also.
I'd start by changing the idler pulley. Also, inspect all of the other pulleys and make sure that they aren't dirty or damaged in any way. Be sure that the belt isn't being contaminated by a coolant or oil leak.
And just listen carefully to try to isolate the noise to one accessory.

Good luck!
