The cars on fire! Run for your lives! No actually it kinda depends on the reason you replaced the belt. If it was broke to begin with, you might have a frozen accessory pulley or idler pulley might have failed. Otherwise I would look for a friction point somewhere along the belts path. Also depends on the type of smoke you're talking about ie; Rubber smoke, oil smoke, or electrical smoke.

Hi, first, keep this diagram around as you will need it to route the serpentine belt when you reinstall it. There may also be a diagram under the hood by the radiator.

I want to replace my AC compressor belt

Just like your main serpentine belt, there is a tensioner for the ac belt as well. It may be easier to do it from under the vehicle. The main serpentine belt needs to be removed so you can have access to take the ac serpentine belt off. our vehicle should also have a diagram under the hood as to how the serpentine belt system is run. If you replaced the main serpentine belt, the ac should be pretty straightforward as well.
