Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse
The bolt that allows the alternator to move is the adjustment - for tightening or loosening the belt..
The other bolt is for tightening down..
I would loosen the adjusting bolt so the alternator moves a bit.. put the belt on and then after it is on,, use a large screw driver to find leverage and push the alternator in the direction that tightens the belt.. Hold tight with the leverage and tighten the sliding bolt good and the other bolt..
I think your problem is because the belt was not tight enough..
Good luck ;o)
