belt squeak

UGH ....I have a belt alignment problem. It is tracking on the fan pulley. What causes this to happens and how do I fix it. I have replaced the water pump thinking the bearings were going out.

Check to see if your harmonic balancer isn't warped. They are easy to replace if it is .

Heat, age, tight belt any of those combinations. It is not uncommon.
