    are you sure its the fan belt and not the power steering . at low speeds when you sometimes put to much tension on the power steering and it doesnt have enough enginespeed to help get the fluid moving it will make that squeek

    Run some regular bar soap on the underside of the belt whiole motor is OFF. Build up a little bit like wax. See if that works for a while.
