    i have an anoying squeek on our 93 burb. the belt is only a few months old. the little idler pully (no smog pump) is all bumpy on its surface. could this cause sqeeking. the tensioner seems tight as hell still and the sound doesn't seem to come from it. i've tryed the ol' long screw driver to the ear trick and it doesn't seem that its coming from any of my other accessories. anyone have this problem? and are those to pullys available at the normal parts wharehouses or are they a GM deal? thanks,

    Take the belt off and spin each one by hand...Does either have a tight spot or a squeak? Both are available from NAPA...you can get just eh bearing for each if you want, probably like 15 for both sealed bearings...
