Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Yes, it's a coincidence that the problem started after having the belt replaced.

You may have a blend door issue, either the door itself or a failed actuator, or it may be the heater core itself.

If you have a single zone system then there is a single blend door that controls temperature on both sides. A difference in temperature would almost surely be a restricted heater core.

If you have a dual zone system then there is a separate blend door and actuator for each side. If you completely lost control of temperature on one side with a dual zone system then you most likely have a broken door or failed actuator.
