death squeel

The past couple of days I have had a horrible squeel comming from the serpentine system. Two weeks ago my tensionor assembly went bad so I replaced. When the squeel started I thought that the bearing in the idler puller had gone so I replaced that as well. Now the noise has gotten louder, and it gets a little quiter when the rpms go up.

Has anyone had this problem or somethign similar??

Did you replace the belt when you replaced the tensioner and idler?

I replaced the belt about 6-8 months ago, I dont remember getting it wet, but it has been a little cold here the past few days.
