Serpentine belt began to chirp at startup. Couldn't figure out which pulley was out of alignment so I replaced the belt, the three idler pulleys, and the tensioner for less money than it would have cost to have a mechanic diagnose the issue and replace even one pulley. Could have done the entire job for $120 but I opted to go with OEM Subaru components. Issue has been resolved and I believe it was the 80mm idler pulleys that had gone bad. Both of the 80mm pulleys can be replaced for about $32 for the two of them.
