Question about 1998 Chrysler Concorde
While the pulley could be misaligned, that only happens when something has changed, such as a new compressor installed.
The most common reason belts break is that there is an idler roller with a bad bearing, that causes the belt to get hot and burn up.
Anything on the same belt, that is not turning properly, could be the cause.
It could be the alternator, power steering, or even the AC compressor itself.
Take the belt off and turn whatever is attached to this belt, by hand. You should be able to tell where the drag is coming from.
But also if the belt is not being tightened enough, that will cause premature failure.
