first try buying a small can of fan belt dressing and carefully put it on the SIDES of the belt (where it contacts the pulley). Also the belt may be streched - so you can try to tighten the belt by adjusting the takeup adjustor. Or finally replace the belt - if none of these work. Your car does not have a fan belt. Belt dressing is bad mmmmkay. Messy and will cause more problems (redneck temporary fix). Make sure your belt is tight or have someone check it for you. If it is a serpentine belt (tension is spring loaded) check the tensioner and check for bad pulley bearing. But in 2002, most fans are electric. which means no belt to squeal.
