Either get a new belt, or take some sandpaper and lightly sand your pullies. Thank you for the advice. The recommendations have been printed out and will be provided to my mechanics at a future appointment. The recommendation worked and because I forgot to buy a new belt, I simply "roughed" it up a little bit with the same scouring pad and the squeaking has stopped.

There is no idle vacuum line on P/S. I don't know how you tightened a serpentine belt when their is no provision for doing that. The tension is controlled by the idler tension pulley. If you are referring to a normal drive belt, then set the deflection at mid point of the belt to approximately 1/4". Check with Chrysler for the exact specs on deflection.
