Most likely the belt. Screams when I step on it.... lets off when I ease off the pedal. Now I haven't looked too hard yet, but I think the AC compressor is on a separate belt. Turned AC off, no change....

So the main suspect is the belt tensioner. Are they prone to fail as early as 40K? Looks like a $60 piece, any mistakes you can help me avoid?

Thanks.

Check the tension. If it is tight, then clean the belt with a spray degreaser or a can of belt dressing. If it is the pulley I would expect the sound to be more consistent.
