This procedure is for anybody who has has trouble getting a serpentine belt on. It's easy and doesn't require a prybar.

Your routing of the belt is probably wrong. There should be a diagram under the hood as to how the belt should be installed. The alternator is the last pulley to put the belt around. Using a 3/4" socket and inserting it into the tensioner pully, you have to 'lift' or 'pull up on the tensioner (some effort, not loose) while wrapping the belt around the alternator pully. Should be a 5 minute job.

Does the alternator have an adjustment arm on it? If so, then I would say you are correct. Spend $20 on a Haynes Repair Manual at Auto Zone and get the exact step by step instructions with pictures on how to replace the belt or do just about anything else on your auto.
