Does it "squeak" while sitting still, or does it have to be moving for you to hear the squeak?

Does the "squeak" disappear at low rpm's or is it a constant squeak.

Without more info, , its difficult to diagnose. It could be;
1. Speedometer cable
2. Tachometer needle
3. Front wheel bearings
4. Timing belt tensioners
5. Water pump bearings
6. Brake pads, , ,or any of the possibilities you brought up.

I had this same thing happen to me several years ago on my 1990se. I could clearly hear it from the front of the engine and assumed it was the timing belt tensioners. Bought and installed replacements, started it up and the squealing noise was still present. As it turned out, even though I was hearing the sound from the front of the engine, the problem was with the alternator bearings. Replaced them and all was back to normal. You might want to remove the left side cover and listen for the sound at the alternator.
