Check if there is any obstruction in the path of the pulley or the belt is too tight or this may not be correct one get it fixed by using a correct belt.............

An idler arm is a steering component found on vehicles without rack and pinion steering. Your referring to an idler pulley. To replace: remove the belt, remove the bolt from the center of the pulley, replace the pulley and reinstall the belt.

After adjustment is satisfactory, tighten the idler pulley bolt, and then tighten the adjustment bolt.
Reconnect the negative battery cable.
When replacing more than 1 belt, it is a good idea to make note or mark what belt goes around what pulley; this will make installation easier if you mix up the belts.
