Squeaky Fanbelt?

Hi folks, got what sounds like a squealing fan belt on my 156, had Variator and belts done couple of months ago, any suggestions please, can't see the 'ordinary' type of alternator belt, just what appears to be a long 'ribbed' affair. Could I make an adjustment to tighten something up?

Thanks one and all, Andy

The Auxillary belt has a tensioner, which fails after a while

Cost me about 200 Quid (Quick Conversion) to get it fixed with labour.

Dust the serpentine belt with some cheap talc, and see if the squeak diminishes first? Then as said, suspect a bearing maybe?:
