The squeak is gone! New ford harmonic balancer installed.

Ford obviously knew that this was a big issue, since the new one is completely differently constructed.

Fixed the squeak and the motor runs 10X smoother, the tensioner is nearly stationary and you can not feel the motor turning in the car. It kinda felt like a rough idle before.

For anyone who has not had the failure, pull the belt and wiggle the outside of the harmonic balancer. should not feel any give.

This seems to be a serious problem. Something I think Ford should have performed a recall on. To help link relevant information together here is a recently discussed thread with the same issue, and pictures to identify it: Link.
