I had the same problem, so I took the belt off and washed it in soapy water. I then took a wet, soapy cloth and wiped off all of the pulleys. The squeal in my Aerostar was caused by a leaking power steering pump, which leaked fluid on the belt, causing it to slip and squeal.

Remove radiator, serpentine belt, bracket for power steering, and you should be able to get to all water pump bolts, although I'm having a hard time removing fan from pump.
