Default Squeaky Hemi

Hi guys,
I have 2010 sport with hemi. It is really squeaking and sounds like the serpentine belt. I am going to look into it tomorrow. After researching it sounds like these belts usually go for 100K miles or more. Anything I should look for? 63K miles. Thanks in Advance.
John

How hard is changing the serpentine belt? Do I just take pressure off with the tensioner and slide over the fan and line it up?
Thanks,
John

100K would be pushing it. Especially with the harsh winters y'all have up there.
Cracks and squeaks.

Piece of cake, Johnny. You've already got it figured out. Now all you need to do is get a breaker bar with a 15mm socket (I think that's what size the bolt on the tensioner is) on it and apply some opposite pressure. Shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes.
