Re: the belt keeps coming off the fan
The only reason for the belt coming off the pulley is the something in the belt path is off aligment.
put the belt back on and chek the path where the belt pass. water pump, alternator, AC compressor, Power steeling unit, etc....... or even the pulley tensioner itself.
chance are there is a belt in the wrong pully slot.

You have an out of alignment belt run across the pulleys of the engine, this causes the belt to make noise as it rubs on the edge. Many times this is causes by the crankshaft vibration damper coming part and the pulley walking outward.
Around the outside of power steering pulley,under idler,over a/c comp,around alternator,over fan pulley, around crank pulley, over water pump. The backside of the belt contacts the idler, fan and water pump.
Not difficult. Lean on drivebelt to keep pump from turning while removing fan. The rest is bolt off, bolt back on, make sure all gasket material is off block. If you don't get a manual, draw yourself a belt diagram so you can put it back on. adjustment is either p/s pump or separate adjuster pulley below p/s pump.
I'll bet your car died. And it over heated, And the battery was flat , And the steering went out and every other system run off of the belt.
This is for anybody who has had trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.
Get a 14mm or 9/16" socket and a long handled ratchet or breaker bar.
Get the belt around all the pulleys except the A/C compressor or Alternator.
Locate the tensioner pulley. It's one of the smaller
ones and is mounted on a spring loaded arm. It's job, as the name
suggests, is to keep the belt tight. Get your socket on
the center nut of this pulley.
Slowly pull the ratchet toward the center of the
engine. The pulley will pivot on the arm allowing you to get the belt
on the final pulley.
