Question about Cars & Trucks
Belt kept falling off I replaced it but not sure of the proper installation, looking for a diagram could you supply me with one
An engine /vehicle model with information of power steering and ac fitment would help. Basically the grooves in the belt go into the grooves of the pulley and any idlers run on the back ( flat) part of the belt. If you have grooves in the belt running over a flat idler pulley then the belt is fitted wrong.

I have the same car and last night my belt slipped off. The top small pulley backed it's self out. The problem is in most cars the pulleys are reverse threaded so this wont happen, in ours not so much. The pully spins loose with the turn of the belt so it has to be tightened way down. IT's a pain. Here is a diagram I found and You need a 15mm wrench, which doesn't just come in most sets. Good Luck
The book says "Using a 15 mm socket or wrench on bolt attaching drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate drive belt tensioner clockwise. Make sure spring keeper engages into slot." I would put a socket on the 15 mm pulley bolt and a long handle for leverage. Thats one tight spring.

The tensioner pully is the one that's mounted to an arm, with a square hole to put the 3/8" drive of your ratchet into. Consult the diagram by the hood latch to identify the other pullies, i.e. power steering, a/c, alternator, that should narrow it down for you. It's basically the only pulley not directly attached to a component.

All of the belt driven accessories on the 3.3L and 3.8L engines are driven by a single serpentine belt. The belt tension is maintained by am automatic tensioner.
