Probably some oil or similar on one of the pulleys or the belt

I think you may have misunderstood the previous reply, you may already have oil on the belt causing it to slip, do not put oil or wd40 or such onto your drive belts. If you suspect slip and the belt is correctly adjusted, then try a little talc or french chalk on the belt & pulleys, it will roughen the surface to give more bite, you will probably need new belt anyway.

the belt is only three days old the noise is a squeaking from the pulleys the belt doesnt look like its slipping when first started the noise is there when idle and when driving it first disapears when idle and after a short while when driving the noise then goes completly will try the talc
