To tighten the alternator belt on your engine :

First disconnect the negative cable on the battery .

Loosen bolt #1 and 2 (attachment 1 )pivot the alternator outwards from the motor to tighten up the belt then tighten up #1

check the tension Attachment 2 . when happy with the tension tighten pivot bolt and recheck tension ,adjust if needed.
