Default Belt Squeal

I just replaced the tensioner pulley which fixed the grinding, bad bearing noise. but now the belt has a constant squeal.. any ideas?? I replaced just the pulley, the mount didn't need replaced. After changing it, I drove for a day and then the next morning it started squealing. Is the belt bad or what? Thanks in advance!

Sounds like a bad belt... whenever you remove a belt its always a good idea to replace it if its been on there for a while.....

Id say go ahead and replace it, There not expensive so Go pick up a new one and see if its still squeeling after ya put it on
