Dodge Caliber R/T Squeak

Hi all, Recently my dodge caliber R/T (2007) automatic has stared making a squeaking noise coming from what seems like the passenger side of the engine compartment.

I recently had the serpentine belt replaced thinking this was the issue however nothing changed. I also had the dealership reflash the pcm and tcm as there was a tsb online about there being software issues with this particular years make.

The squeak is still present at idle at will increase in variable when the accelerator is pressed but the noise will fade after about 4k rpm. I am attaching two videos below so everyone can get a better understanding of the sound. I believe the problem may be either a faulty water pump, an idler tensioner, or possibly the alternator clutch. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

I also had a certified tech at tires plus take a look and he stated it may be coming from the cvt transmission? though the sound is present at idle and when placed in park.

Please listen closely as the engine almost drowns out the noise. It is more noticeable in the first video.
