2000 T&C Lxi w/3.8 Chirping Belt and or accessories

(2000 Chrysler Town & Country)
in South Weymouth, MA on March 29, 2013
For the past 3-4 years we've experienced an increasingly loud (and annoying) chirping (sounds almost like a grinding tick) from the belt or associated accessories. I've had pulleys, power steering, shaft seal and numerous belts changed. The last change was to to install a slightly smaller belt - now it seems louder. It is a loud chirp/tick and is constant, increasing in frequency as the engine speed increases. 3 different techs, same problem; ANY suggestion would be appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestion - I'll take a look at the water pump.
CHRYSLER AND DODGE HAVE A UPDATED BELT AND TENSIONER KIT
IF YOU STILL HAVE THE ORIGINAL TENSIONER IT WILL CHIRP MATER WHAT YOU CHANGE
DONT FORGET WHEN YOU GET A UPDATED TENSIONER YOU WILL HAVE TO GET UPDATED BELT TWO ( UPDATED BELT HAS GROVES ON BOTH SIDE )

I believe we have changed the tensioner, but I will look into this and get Chrysler products only. Thank you.
