Excessive belt tension will cause damage to the alternator and water pump pulley bearings, while, on the other hand, loose belt tension will produce slip and premature wear on the belt. Therefore, be sure to adjust the belt tension to the proper level.
To adjust the tension on a drive belt, loosen the adjusting bolt or fixing bolt locknut on the alternator, alternator bracket or tension pulley. Then move the alternator or turn the adjusting bolt to adjust belt tension. Once the desired value is reached, secure the bolt or locknut and recheck tension.

The squeal when first started is most likely coming from the alternator belt. You need to have the tension of the belt checked to make sure it is properly adjusted. If you had a shop due it have , have them recheck it. Or stop by a local shop and they shouldnt charge you to check it. But its all in how you ask, if you go in and tell them your problem most likely they will try to get you for a fee to diagnose it.Just ask to have them check the belts and make sure there tight.If its ok, has anyone tried to fix your sqeul by spraying anything on it? if so your belt could be slipping from the lube they used. there is one more thing you can try, providing all the pullys/ tensioner pully if equiped are straight. If it is a serpantine belt(flat/multiple grooves) not A v-belt
when the engine is off,you take a tablespoon or so of corn starch, yes the stuff in the yellow box in the kitchen, and put it on the inside oif the belt. Its acts like a dry lube. I learned this trick at the GM dealership, from a factory bu;lliton. good luck

First buy the belt. Then to take the old one off you will most likely need a 3/4 in drive ratchet. There should be an automatic belt tensioner that your will need to loosen by sticking that ratchet in the tensionor and turning it counter clockwise. It will take a little umph to get it, then take off the now loosened belt. to install that also what you need to do.

If you have limited / no mechanical knowledge leave this to an Auto Technician.
This a relatively easy job.
Undo the alterantor lock nut (12mm ring spanner / socket wrench)
Undo the alternator adjustment bolt almost fully (Either 10mm / 12mm wrench)
Get under the car and loosen the main alterantor bolt using a 14mm wrench. Just loosen enough to move alternator, it is not to be removed.
Pull alterantor forward to slacken belt / remove belt.
Replacement is the opp of the above.
Ensure the MAX. deflection at the middle of the belt is only 12mm (1/2") after all redfitting is done.
Failure to have it this tight will wear it out very quickly!!

First take off the negative battery cable, facing the back of the car reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change the belt. If you need to change the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the pulley it holds the adjuster pulley in place . Then you can use the adjuster belt to move the pulley to adjust the belt.
