Check the alignment of the belt wheels with a steel straight edge. and when you fit a new one ensure you have at least 1/2 inch play in the top run of the new belt. You are not supposed to be able to cut cheese with the belt, you have to allow for movement as the belt is moving quite quickly when working.

My car keep on breaks alternator belts and it also makes this loud whistling noise. I've put on a new water pump, 3 alternators and several alternator belts

make sure that the pulleys of all the driven equipment are in alignment and not at a bit of an angle to the axis of the drive belt
To break belts something is not lined up properly or something is not turning freely

1997 mercury villager alternator keeps going bad. Any reason for this?

Check the lines of the alternator sometimes it gets corrosives
Check the tension on the drive belt, bearings, brushes...
Take the current alternator and test it with the new one and check the voltage in the store where you purchased.
check for shorts.
check that gets enough ground.
Also, just because its new does not mean its good special if it's refurbished that I don't know where you purchase it.

I remember a time that I replaced my refurbish steering power pump 6 times. pump was defected took me 6 times. it could be the Alternator regulator to be faulty.

how you can tell if your alternator is faulty. the lights on inside your car will blink go off, when you change station on your radio go off and on, dim, fuses blowing, head lights bulb blowing... check it out.
Test the alternator both the one you have now and a new one,
get second opinion to another place.

If is refurbished and keeps dying try to get the genuine for your car.

Good luck

The Battery on my 1998 Buick Riviera keeps running down..I have replaced the battery twice but the problem is still there.I had an Auto electric expert check it out and he repaired the Fuse panel which...

Any Auto Electrician would be able to trace the leak and advise accordingly. Maybe the alternator is not charging properly, is the fan belt loose etc etc
