SOURCE: toyota echo serpentine belt

The only way to loosen and tighten the serpentine belt is by loosening the alternator and sliding it back or forward. There are TWO bolts that must be loosened, one above, and one below the alternator pulley. A bit of penetrating oil can make things easier.

Locate the idler pulley. Loosen the nut in the center of the idler pulley. Then loosen the bolt that protrudes from the back of the pulley. This will let the belt go slack.

1988 Toyota Camry LE clicking noise during acceleration

start with premium gas or injector cleaner, could be a low octane ping. this may be hard to diagnose with out hearing the noise so the other thing i would have you do is remove the belts and run the engine. sometimes when a bearing in an alternator, idler pulley, a/c compressor or belt tensioner goes bad they can make a clicking noise. try to listen if the noise is coming from the belt area, the transmission area or some other spot. spin all the pulleys with the engine off and wiggle them to see if any are bad

I had 2003 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder in for

While it is a possibility, having the tensioner lose tension seems more probable that it locking up as the mechanics have stated. You seem to know what you are talking about, so why not try throwing a wrench on it and turning it towards the serpentine belt? Then you can see for yourself if it has seized or not. It is the small pulley that doesn't seem to power anything like your AC compressor, alternator, fan, crank, powr streering. match a wrench to the size of the bolt and turn it, if it moves take the belt off (noting how it goes) and put the new one on saving you 280 dollars.

Engine light

You need to Check the Belt Tension,Belt Tensioner, Battery and the Alternator. If the Belt is even a Little Loose it will not allow the Alternator to Charge the Battery fully.
