Auxiliary belt, probably. Its a common complaint. Its a flat belt and when its worn, it can slip against the pulleys causing a squeak.

You can get some stuff to spray onto the belt to give it better adhesion, or you can replace the belt - better done at a garage cos I gather its not the easiest of maintenance jobs, plus the belt needs to be the right tension after refitting.
