Q: 2000 T&C Lxi w/3.8 Chirping Belt and or accessories on 2000 Chrysler Town & Country

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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.

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.
