Check the numbers on the old belt or take it to an auto spares shop and they have a tool that will measure the belt for you. Buying from the net in this case is a bad idea as belt width will vary the length and besides if the shop sells you the wrong size you just take it back for a bigger/smaller one. Point ---make sure that you are fitting the belt on all the pulleys in the correct way as missing a pulley will be too big or going the wrong way around a pulley will make it too small.

the alternator is spun by the serpentine belt which also spins the steering pump and the A/C compressor. you need to buy a new belt and install it. the belts have different lengths depending on how the engine is configured. take your old belt to a parts store so they can measure it and sell you the proper belt. in order to put the new belt on you are going to have to pull off the service panel behind the right front wheel. so you are going to have to jack it up, put it on a stand and take off the right front wheel. it is nearly impossible to get the belt under the lower pulley without doing it through that service panel. when the belt is properly on all pulleys, except the tensioner, someone is going to have to pull and keep the tensioner back so the belt can be put into its proper position. there should be a small stick figure decal under the hood showing the tensioner and moving of it.

My serpentine belt has about 2inch's of slack in it. Why?

This is how it should be routed if you have the 3.0L engine. Give me the number off of your belt and I can tell you if it is the right one.

Belt bypass too small

yes, there could be an "a/c delte" pulley out there that would go where the compressor was. double check that you are routing the belt right. all other pullies are the same. maybe your diagram is wrong or you are misinterpreting. (it happens to everyone) if you still can't get it, you can wrap a peice of string around all the pullies, measure the string, and ask for that size belt.
