Noise from the rear end

Got a squeak coming from the rear end. I have had the bel adjusted by a local shop and the belt did not show any sogns of wear, the tire is not rubbing any wear and the noise is made on both concrete and grass. Based on what I've rear on here before I'm thinking one of the bearing may be going bad. Any suggestion for what I may need to look into or have my shop look into under the warranty?

A quick test for belt noise is to rub a candle against the teeth on the belt take it for a little spin then check for the noise. If the noise is gone it was your belt if not you will have to check further.My VAQ makes the same noise when I am moving the bike around slowly which is coming from my belt.

WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS, LOWER YOUR STANDARDS...

Spray some silica (electrical grease) spray on the belt or even some wd40

I had a squeak from the rear of mine. After about an hour of searching I found that it was a missing screw on the inside of the finder where the lower piece and the upper piece hook together with a bracket. The plastic was rubbing on the bracket causing a sqweak. Put the screw in no sqweak
