Question about Cars & Trucks
The belt is too tight to go around both pulleys
There should be a tensioner that you can rotate with a socket on the bolt in the middle and a long ratchet handle.

The belt typically won't squeal when too tight, it will just put more wear and tear on the components. I would recommend removing the belt, and cleaning the pulley with brake parts cleaner and a tooth brush. There is probably some sort of residue on the pulley, which is allowing the belt to slip when the a/c clutch engages. If this doesn't help, make sure all of your pulleys are aligned. Use a long straight edge to check their alignment with each other. If they aren't close to perfectly straight, it will cause the belt to ride funny and squeal when the a/c clutch engages.

should be a single bolt in the center of it be sure to remove belt first so that there is no tension left on pulley. if this pulley is the belt tensioner it has a pin in the back that sits into a hole upon installation.
