Default Belt Noise 07 SE' With 32k Miles

I am getting a belt hiss whenever I start my car. It is a higher-pitched hiss and is constant with the car running. I crawled under the passenger side, pulled the fend liner, and hit the belts with some belt dressing. As soon as the dressing hit the forward-most belt, the noise stopped. 10 minutes later, it was back again. The belts look fine, but I'm wondering if it's time to replace them? The car is an 07 with 32k miles. The mileage isn't too high, but they are 5 years old. Any thoughts?


I called my local AutoZone...he can hook me up with both belts for $30. The only problem is they don't carry Goodyear belts, only Dayco. He says they have a couple different Dayco belts, and that the more expensive belts are actually pretty good.

Sometimes the pulleys will get glazed. I've seen it happen on older cars with v-belts and just took some fine grit sandpaper over the pulleys and it fixed the squealing. Hopefully with yours, the rubber on the belts is just hardened up and replacing them will fix it. Being five years old I would say that they have hardened up.
I have always used Gates belts in the past. I put belts on a few weeks back and had to buy them from Autozone. I bought the more expensive Dayco belts and they seem to be good quality belts. They were probably the original belts being that the car has 50,000 miles.

Thanks Chris!
I wasn't sure what belts you went with. My AutoZone has them set aside for me, I'm going to pick them up tomorrow after work.
