I just looked at my '04 xB. It looks very straight forward.
loosen the bolt that holds the alternator to the bracket.
carefully slide the alt to the bottom. (Also be aware of the plug and wires on the alt.They should never hold the weight of the alternator. You dont want them breaking prematurely.)
Pull the belt off, remove the belt from the crank shaft pulley.

Do the reverse, and you will have replaced the belt.

Make sure to check the belt in about a week or so.
New belts will stretch over time. Make sure you keep the tension tight enough to work correctly, but not so tight that the alernator shaft is warped.
I usually place the new belt on both pulleys and give a good "medium" pull on the alt while tightening. Find the middle of the belt and squeeze them together, depending on the type and length of the belt, there should be about 1/4" of flex on both sides.

2005 xb squeals when I start the car then fades


I'm not sure where these other guys live but their solutions are nonsense. Coolant leaks? Fuel pumps? Dead or dying batteries? I too drive a 05 Scion xB and have had squeak issues. These squeaks and squeals are caused by one or both of the serpentine belts. If not the belts then the pulley's associated with the belts. One of the belts drives the power steering and the other operates the Alternator, Water Pump and AC Compressor.
Does your car squeak when you have the AC turned on and the fan running fairly fast?
Do you hear a rough kind of noise when you're turning the wheel? If it's either or those two then I'd check your belts.
But still to be on the safe side I'd bring it to a mechanic and have them check the belts for glazing or wear then go from there. If you can put belts on yourself they will run you about $40 for the pair. Most garages charge an arm and a leg for them and then another appendage to install them.

Best of luck

Sounds like a stuck motor. Hold the switch down and slam the door shut. This will usually break it free. It will most likely need a motor though.
