Bear is an unknown quantity at this point
Squeal

Not being facetious, but tighten the belts. I had this on a '90 325IC and it was the alternator belt that was squealing.

My power steering belt squeals when I turn the wheel all the way to either side...I'm sure I just need to tighten it...but I just haven't gotten around to it...

I'd say tighten yours...

I second that motion. See how much tension is on them. If you can easily push them down, tighten them.
