You can just buy a new belt and put it on yourself. Or you could take the one that is on there now and maybe bake it in the oven on a low heat for a while? Just kidding. The heat of the engine should dry it after a while. If not, just buy a new one.

Did your front end go into water, or does this happen to you after you drive your car in the rain?

my belts used to be kinda squeeky, then it got worse and worse. then i went to the dealership, and they fixed the problem, now nomatter what there is NEVER any squeeking at all. you should seriously go to the dealer, because it will only get worse

Perhaps you should try to adjust the belt tensioner. Maybe it is too loose because it is moist and perhaps tightening it would make the noise go away?

Most likely all they would do for you at the dealership. Either that or replace your belt.

5) Using a 3/4 inch wrench you will need to literally need the power of Zeus to relieve the tension on the tensioner by pulling the wrench towards the front of the car. Becareful it is on securely. Pull as hard as you can while a friend pulls the belt off the alternator.

This is taken from the install for the AEM Pulley Kit. Just turn it the opposite direction stated above to tighten it.
