My car is squealing, I dont think the belt needs to be replaced?

I have a 2004 mustang, that is squealing, at first it was only for the first few minutes untill i started driving, it would go away. I bought some belt dressing, because an auto parts said the belt was fine. Now it is getting worse, almost all the time while I'am driving, It sounds like a pulley, but not sure, does anyone have an idea of what it could be?

Could be the bearings in the pulley, but judging by the year, most likely not. I had an 87 Honda where the alternator belt would squeal. Check the tension on the belt. If its too loose or too tight, that could be ur problem.

Could be the belts but could also be the brakes. Take it to a mechanic and have it checked out.
