Spray a little WD 40 or some kind of lubricant on the belt and see if the noise goes away. If it does and the belt looks good then you may have a failing belt tensioner.

I will try that. To replace the belt tensioner, how much "stuff" will I need to remove to replace it? Just the belt? Quite a few items in that area and limited space.
Expert:  Ted G. replied 2 years ago.
Just the belt and tensioner. But it is tight and a lift is really helpful.
