if the idler....and all bearings are ok..replace the belt.

The one thing that I have found other that the idler pulleys when a belt starts to make noise, is the belt tensioner. They start to separate throwing the belt of ever so slightly and start causing a squeak. If the belt is cracked in the serpentine grooves, replace the belt.
