Question about 2005 Kia Sorento
Check belt tensioner adjustment. Spray WD 40 on belts and pulleys and start. If no fix .it is most likely the rear bearings on the alt. before you buy a new one shoot some WD in the rear of the alt through the slits to the shaft. No fix take it to your local chain parts store and they will check it for free.

SOURCE: the belt is loose and squealing
The belts are stretched! I have the same problem! You have to replace them, for I was told you cant tighten them, I drove mine for over 2 years like that!

SOUND LIKE THE ALTERNATOR PULLEY BEARING SEIZED.REMOVE IT AND HAVE IT CHECKED.TAKE IT TO ADVANCE AUTO PARTS OR AUTO ZONE.

The most accurate way to find this out is to take the vehicle to auto zone and have them hook up the hand held diagnostic center to the vehicle and they can test both the alternator and the battery for you.
The best thing is that this is a free service that they provide ok ?
Hope this is very helpful for you

You will need a breaker bar to release the tensioner. A breaker bar is a long ratchet that doesn't ratchet. The breaker bar size for your car is 1/2".
You will see a square hole on the tensioner and that is where the breaker bar goes. Put the breaker bar in there and pull on it until it gives you enough slack to pull the belt off. Make sure to pull the right way to release the tension. IF it wont release the tension don't yank on it try going the other way, It will help to have two people to do this job. You only need to pull it off one pully then slowly let the tensioner go back.
To put the new belt on make sure you run the new belt the exact same way as the old. Again you will need to release the tension from the tensioner and slip the belt over the last pulley.
