I presume your Santa Fe sports the 3.5 liter V6 engine? If it's got the NUT, it's at the front & there's a nut stud. If it's got the BOLT, it's accessed from the opposite (anterior) side using a long, long extension. If you have a vehicle hoist/lift, you can easily see it. If you're on your back with the vehicle on jack stands, it's much more difficult to see the 14mm bolt between the exhaust flex pipe and heat shield of the exhaust manifold at the right hand side of the engine.
Say you're directly beneath the engine oil pan, move toward the transmission and look upward and forward between the 1:00 and 2:00 oclock positions of the engine (toward the power steering pump) - 14mm bolt

BEFORE ADJUSTING THE ALTERNATOR BELT DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE OR YOU MIGHT BLOW AN EXPENSIVE HIDDEN FUSE.
I would replace the steering pump belt at the same time you do the alternator belt (buy both).
To take off the alternator belt . First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp(or a block fuse under the hood). Facing the back of the automobile , reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt.
To take off the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley (right side of pump mount), the nut holds the adjuster pulley in place . With the adjuster pulley nut loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley to adjust/take off the steering pump belt.
