The belt that goes on the alt. ?? if so the tensioner is accessed from under neath the car. You will have to remove the right side tire and plastic sheild that is in place. When you look up at the bottom pulley you will see a nut head. If you lay on your back and look up at the engine, it will be located on the left or front side of the car.

You can possibly buy the belt for your model car that has no a/c. Just ask the clerk at the parts store for a belt for the vehicle that does not have a/c. If they do not sell one then you will have to take off the compressor and replace it with a pulley and braket.That is if they sell one for that particular vehicle.
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 bottom.........you 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......
If it doesn't have an automatic belt tensioner there will be an adjustment screw on either the alternator or power steering pump (possibly both if there are two belts). Loosen the two mounting bolts securing the accessory (ie: alt or p/s pump) and tighten the screw. Once adequate tension is on the belt tighten the mounting bolts.
Sometimes the adjustment is on a seperate pulley and not one of the accessories. If this is the case, loosen the center bolt on the pulley and tighten the adjustment screw. Once tight, tighten the center bolt.
If you have an automatic tensioner there are no adjustments to make the belt tighter.
