If it came off thenit means that the tensioner and or the belt has stretched out. the tensioner is spring loaded so it maintains a constant tension on the belt at all times. If you are not sure how to replace the two items then it is advised to locate soemone local who can or have the vehicle taken to a rtepair facility.
As professional myself, I suggest replacing both the belt and the tensioner assembly.

There should be a tensioner pulley that keeps belt tight.. otherwise you will have to adjust your altenator if it has a sliding bracket type. You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual

How do you loosen the tensinor to replace surpintine belt


Use a tensioner pulley kit (or a 1/2" breaker bar if equipped with a 1/2" square hole) to release tension on the belt by rotating the tensioner until tension is released on the belt. properly.

Some tensioners don't have a square hole to put a breaker bar, but must be turned at the pulley's stationary hex bolt.

Good luck on replacing the serpentine belt.

Surpintine belt diagram


Two places of information. One is under the hood, usually form on the engine. A small white diagram that will show the proper routing for the serptine belt.

Second. Purchase a auto repair manuel at the parts store and it will show the routing the serpetine belt. If you do not have the correct routing you will never get the belt on.

Squeaky surpintine belt


take the belt off and turn the all the pulleys(exept crank pulley) by hand to make sure none of them have a bad bearing. if all the bearings are good, the tensioner probably isn't applying the correct tension.
