Cheap easy way to determine if the belt is on the way out.

Take one of the extremely cheap hotel bars of unused soap straight out of the package. With the truck running, and being extremely careful, take the dry bar of soap and let it rub on the belt. Do both sides of the belt.

Drive and check. If the chirp goes away, replace the belt as it is glazed and the noise will come back.

If chirp is still present, keep looking.
