Question about 1991 Dodge Spirit
I tried to loosen the belt and tried tightening the belt same loud squeak
Take belt off, and spin all pulleys by hand to make sure they are running free first, then replace belt and tension as required. Just in case you have a pulley seized, causing the squeel.

You need to remove the pasengers side wheel an d some inner fender pieces to get at the botton alternator bolt,there is a nut on the other end that can be a problem if you're doing it alone.

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. I will try your suggestions. "
SOURCE: My drive belts on my
I have not worked on your model vehicle. The cars I have worked on have a tensioner that can be backed off with a 1/2 inch breaker bar through a hole in the pulley or on the ling that attaches the tensioner to the motor. Back the tesnioner off and you can install the new belt.
I hope this works for you.
