SOURCE: tightening fan belt
hi, there are 3 bolts on the alternator if you losen the lower 2 first then the top 1, using a large screw driver as a lever between the engine and alternator pushing untill the belt is tight but not over tight or it will burn out, then tighten upper bolt then lower 2

Best guess and best solution - have it diagnosed by a qualified technician. This way you'll find out exactly what's wrong and what's required to fix it (parts, labor, etc.). You may have to pay the diag fee, but you'll also find out what's causing the problem and maybe decide to fix it yourself.

SOURCE: how do i tighten the
If I dont bad remember, first belt off is connected to the alternator, which doubles as the
tightener pully. Just loosen the pivot bolt (if you can get at it, not
too necessary though), the locking bolt, and the tightening bolt, and
push the unit toward the engine, pop off the belt. Now both the AC belt
and the power steering belts are accessible.
Power steering pump is essentially the same drill as the alternator, just no tightening bolt. Here you really do have to loosen the pivot bolt, penetrating oil is useful. The AC belt was made to make your life miserable. You have to get under the car to reach the tightener pully which is just to the front and down from the AC compressor. It's reverse threaded but the design boils down to righty-tighty lefty-loosy. Left pushes the pully away from the belt, etc etc. Penetrating oil is VERY useful here, that bolt is right where it's always getting splashed from puddles and it gets way rusty way fast.
