Serpentine belt
Idler pulley
Tensioner pulley.

Replace all three and you'll be good (for a while).

It's a common problem on Rangers.

Use the 'search' button.You'll be surprised at the amount of posts for squealing belt,squeeking noise,belt tensioner,belt noise,ect.

The belt is glazed. But.. the reason it's glazed is what's important. Check for a worn out bearing and a idler that's got at least 10ftlbs TQ on it.

wow
calm down man

i would start with taking the belt off and spinning all the pulleys that you can spin, see if any of them squeak, if not then go get a new belt, that should run you between $25 and $45 depending on the brand

the tensioner pulley when i got mine was like $7 i think, dont let them sell you the whole tensioner assembly lol
