The TJ Is Back & Now It's Squeeling!!

i got my tj back on wednesday. here is the back story. i was hit by a fedex truck. he hit the front driver side fender. he smashed the fender, crushed the hood, and broke the radiator from the force of pushing the grille laterally, there was no damage to the engine. anyway, i got it back drove it home and it was fine. the next morning i started the jeep before i went in to work and let it sit for 10 mins or so. FYI, the temp has been averaging around 10-15 degrees for the past week or so. i got about 2 minutes down the road when i heard the squeeling. after about 7-10 mins it stopped. now every time i drive my tj the squeeling is heard for the first 7-10 mins of driving. it only does it while driving though. if i am stopped so does the noise. i think it is only the serp belt squeeling, but i'm not sure. i think the serp belt was reused b/c it was not broken. is it possible that there is just crap on the belt from the jeep being painted or worked on? if so could it still make the squeeling noise after 2 days and 50 miles of driving? does this make sense to anyone or am i too "all over the board?"

BTW: 2005 "X" 6 cyl. 4.0L, Auto Tranny, 63K miles?

Yes.
Change belt and keep the old one as a spare.

or instead of getting a new belt you could hold a bar of soap under it while its running and see if that stops it. be careful if you do this

Or you could just toothbrush it take a metal wire brush if you can and while you have it runnin put very...light pressure on the serp. belt i had a similar prob with my s-10 squealing a long time ago and if all you have is dirt or whatever it is it should stop the sqealing my s-10 would do it when i first started driving but it just had build up on it but its your jeep just thought i'd bring it up.

X3. And if the belt doesn't fix it, take a look at the fan.

I haven't had any issues with my jeep clutch fan(s), but I've had some weird stuff happen with some older chevy ones.

Or a can of belt dressing will do the trick.
Very common problem.

Or the belt is loose and it just needs to be tighter. In the morning as it loose, it will slip under load, but not a rest. Find the adjustment screw and give it a turn or two see what happens.

I agree with 4jeepn try tightening the belt, If for some reason that does not do the trick may want to check the tension pulley. That is what my squealing turned out to be.
