Smile initial salutation and question for the community

Greetings Distinguished Mercury community, first of all I'm glad to have been accepted to your forums and thus to be allowed to exchange opinions and naturally learn a whole lot in the process with fellow proprietors of vehicles identified by this venerable brand.

I'm a confessed admirer of the Ford panther platform the last example of America's full size unibody V-8 sedans among which is naturally the Mercury grand marquis which I proudly own, my is a 07 LS model.

Now, I just wanted to ask a question to the community in regard to a unfortunate mechanical issue my Mercury Grand Marquis has been presenting in the last week is about this "honk' "squeal" "howling" that is coming out of my engine and appears to show up sporadically, but there's no day in which I ride the car that it won't show up, so I'm assuming is important.

The noise appears to come from the drive belt area at least that's what I think I've done extensive research in the subject and I've concluded that the problem could be the idler pulley of the drive belt. Now, I'm obviously not sure of this conclusion and before spending hard earned cash I'd like to consult to people with much expertise that I have and see what's their take on the issue.

Here's a youtube link to a video I made of the noise in question so you guys can issue your respective opinions.

I really value your help, and the things you've done through this community, and I look forward to a nice exchange of opinions and thoughts in the days to come.

Kind regards
