I would agree that you just need to replace the belt but don't go with a duralast or cheap parts store brand. It will not last long before it starts squeeling too. Get a goodyear or other national brand belt.

The only belt that didn't make noise on my 98 was the Goodyear Gatorback. Don't bother with the rest.
