SOURCE: I just replaced the ac

You will find that the air conditioning compressor is located at the lower section of the engine and the tension adjustment is located and accessed from the may have to raise the vehilce on jack stands to get access, and you will find that there is a black plastic cover to protect the crankshaft pulley from any debris might have to be removed also, to gain access......if you follow the belt around from the crankshaft pulley, you will find another pulley where the adjustment can be made......

Why does my 2001 mitsubishi montero sport keeps breaking my ac belt

Misalignment, wrong size belt, something is in contact with the belt and causing premature wear. A pulley may be seizing up within the belts route. Or cheap belts, but that usually isn't one of the answers.

I have a squeaking sound that I think is coming from the ac compressor. I noticed it stoped when I put on belt dressing and the pulley got wet. I heard the same sound coming from other monteros as well,...

once the belt become loose it slips and its friction surfaces become damaged .. even if its then tightened properly it may still slip .. an old damaged belt should be replaced and tensioned properly ... its common for older type belts to slip and make noise .. it is not as common in later cars since they often have automatic belt tension and improved belts .. any slipping is a sign of some other problem ... one frequently seen problem on some cars is a pulley that is spring loaded to keep the belt properly tightened .. the pivot on the pulley freezes up and no longer maintains proper tension .. those pulleys can sometimes be re lubed but often are hopelessly frozen and need replaced ... also other pulleys and the alternator bearings can start to make a squeaking noise when the sealed bearings lose there lube .. you can put a drop of oil on each bearing to see if one quiets the sound ..

Yes, that's what lock's it in place to hold tension on belt, loosen nut on pulley, and turn other bolt and pulley will slide up or down to release tension on belt.

How can i stop my AC belt from making noises when my AC is on

The reason your belt is making a noise is either your belt is worn and needs replacing or the belt tension is out of adjustment and needs checking and adjusting.
It is a good idea to replace it anyway specially if the belt has small cracks on the inside.

I need to replace the ac belt and not sure if i need to take the serpentine belt off to do so

If you have a full size Montero (non-sport), you only have a serpentine belt; it drives the AC as well.
