Ive been tightening my alternator belt a lot lately....it seems like a day after i tighten the belt it loosens up again while im driving and that damn squeeling noise starts (so i tighten it again). Its really starting to piss me off anyone have any idea how to keep it from coming loose? New bolt or something?

Yeah i just replaced it not too long ago, and that sounds like a good idea because it only loosens up when im driving pretty hard. But i just replaced it because it was squeeling and wouldnt stop (even when tightened) maybe a crappy new belt (i got it from kragen)?

did you get a drive-rite belt? the cheaper of the 2?

the better belt is a Dayco and costs around twice as much, but is of much higher quality.

also if you over-tighten a belt it is going to stretch as you are driving and eventually get loose again.
