What are the belts like condition wise? Any cracks? Might just be worth changing if you can't tell where the squeak is actually coming from, any changes in the squeak if you turn lights on full and heating etc?

It could be the power steering belt tensioner bearing slightly dry. I'd not worry about it unless it really starts to make a noise.
