Question about 1992 Geo Metro
On a 2/3G Metro there is one bolt above the alternator and one in each side of the bottom. the bottom ones act as a hinge and must be loosened the top one is the adjuster. If the belt squeals it always means that the belt is loose, nothing more.

As long as the squeal is from the belt and the pump is not leaking, I don't see any reason to change the water pump. If it is the main drive belt and not the A/C belt, you use the alternator for belt tension. You don't have to remove the screws, you only need to loosen them enough to allow the alternator to move. If I remember correctly, There are 2 bolts. 1 on a track which allows it to move in and out and the other more or less acts like the hinge. The A/C belt (if you have A/C) has its own tensioner which is easier to get to under the car. 2 screws, 1 locks it, the other is the adjustment. I am going by memory so if I'm not quite right that is why. I hope this helps.
