SOURCE: I changed the altenator, but
If the belt is angled funny, you do not have it routed correctly.
There should be a belt routing diagram under the hood somewhere. Check that the pulley position of the new alternator is the same as the old alternator.
Why not identify your vehicle; Which model? What year? Which engine? Does it have A/C? Answering these questions will allow myself and others to give you a much better answer.

I would go to auto zone and get a diagram and the timing belt and do it yourself and the water pump (no it does not have to be changed everytime the timing belt is changed but if the car has over 60,000miles then it is best to change them both) it is not that hard especially if the car is not out of time just make sure you disconnect the negative side of the battery

To replace the sepentine belt: Get a 9/16 socket with a extension. Look under the car and look for the oil filter. Next to the oil filter you will see a bolt. Use the sock and losen the bolt. This will losen the tensioner. You will notice the bolt coming out, push the bolt up and the tensioner will allow you to remove the belt.

it uses a spring loaded tensioner.use a breaker bar to rotate the tension and it should just come off.if u need a pic or anything else to do it let me know,
