loosen the mounting bolts on the alternator, remove the old belt, replace with the new belt, slightly tighten the top mounting bolt, pull the alternator up until the belt is tight or if there is an adjustment bolt, crank down until tight (shouldn't bow more than 1"), and tigten other hardware.

OK, you probably should have a lift if it is not on top. If on top, then you are in luck. Here we go...

Before you disconnect the battery, make sure you have a memory saver which connects to your OBDII connector, or you have the security code for your radio or you don't care if you lose all you memories on your radio AND there is no security code needed to make the radio work later once the battery is reconnected.

OK. Disconnect the battery.

Next, get a powerful flashlight or shop light and luminate the your work area.

Third. Put a large soft towel on your car as not to scratch the finish with your body.

WARNING : Never lean you weight on and area without knowing what it is! For example, alot of techs and mechs lean on a radiator, only to break the plastic radiator only to cause even more damage!

Next, find the way to loosen the tensioner to remove the alternator belt. Usually there are (2) 10MM screws. One loosens the tension, the second is the longer, threaded adjustment screw. Always loosen the smaller screw first!

Ok, you got the belt off. Now, there should be a 13MM or 15MM bolt that needs tp be removed. You need the lift for this one because the passenger side tire and splash guard needs to be removed to get to these (sometimes). Also, you may need swivel ratchets. The best on the market are my MATCO they have a set for about $400 that make this type of work a breeze, as long as you have a lift and patience.

This job should take about 1 hour to do. Do not oevrtighten or undertighten the adjustment screw when putting back together. If possible, I actually count the number of turns I make to undo an adjustment screw, so I turn it exactly the same number of times when I am reinstalling. Good Luck.

SOURCE: belt diagram 1997 toyota corolla? alternator belt

The 97 Corolla has three accessory belts. The alternator belt is the one you see when you look down on the passenger side standing near the front of the engine compartment. If fits over the alternator and the engine pulley. The belt beneath it is the a/c belt (if the car has a/c). It fits over the engine pulley and the a/c compressor. The power steering belt is toward the rear of the engine compartment, on the same side. It fits around the engine pulley and the power steering pump.

Replacing the alternator belt is not too difficult. Standing in front of the car and facing towards the rear, loosen the locking bolt under the right side of the alternator. Then loosen the alternator hinge bolt on top of the alternator. Now you are ready to loosen the alternator belt tensioner adjustment bolt, accessed under the alternator from the front. Turn the tensioner until the old belt is loose enough to remove, then turn it further so that the new belt will go on easily. Replace the belt and re-tension until you have about 1/4 in. to 1/8 in. of play in the belt, tighten the lock bolt and the hinge bolt, and run the engine. If the belt squeals it means you need more tension, but do not overtension. Recheck it after a few days.

Toyota Tercel belts are squealing

I have been having the same problem with the alternator belt squealing, most noticeably, when using the heater fan , accelerating, turning the headlights on. I have a 1997 Toyota Tercel CE 1.5L 4cyl with no A/C. I just tightened the belt tight enough that there is no give to the belt and it does not squeal anymore.

I also used a Goodyear Gatorback from Napa belt which seems to be nice and quiet when tight enough.

My 97 tercel has also starting squealing when cold-but only when I reverse.

Squealing, like a belt? I've found that the alternator belt has to be super-tight or else it squeals. It's a pain in the **** to torque the alternator sideways enough to tighten the belt.

If it is a belt, you could also buy some belt dressing spray and see if that helps. It's pretty cheap stuff per can.

Squeling noise when cold

The right side of the car are where the belts are located. Start by checking their tension and inspecting them for cracks and/or glazing, this would be a sign of slippage. Older belts are not as pliable and will stiffen significantly after cooling, causing a squeel. While the belts are off, spin the pulleys of the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and AC compressor clutch. They should all spin freely with very little to no resistance and no noticeable bearing noise. If there is a 'grinding' feel to any of them as you spin them, it's possible that particular component is failing and causing the belts to slip.
