300E time for a new serpentine belt??

Hello Board, for a few days now, I have been noticing a "chirping" noise under my hood. Well Today I inspected the serpentine belt and noticed that it had a 2-inch split in the middle.

Will this pose a major hazard to my car, or can it be driven as is?

The outer ridges of the belt are not worn, but that small split in the middle is staring me in the face.

Is replacing the serpentine belt a DIY, or does it require a professional?
