Post squeaky belt help pleasee

hey guys i am new to the mustang and forums but i have a 96 mustang gt 5-speed 4.6 only mods is stage 1 F1 clutch, but i recently replaced my alternator due to the bearing going bad in it and after replacing it my belt squeaks horrible the only way i can make it stop is the old method of putting the bar of soap on it i honestly don't know how to tighten the belt any tighter than it is now lol i am 18 and just got the stang 5 months ago so don't have to much experience with cars

I would agree that you just need to replace the belt but don't go with a duralast or cheap parts store brand. It will not last long before it starts squeeling too. Get a goodyear or other national brand belt.

Push in on your tensioner while the car is running to see if squeak goes away. Im on my third tensioner in my car.

The only belt that didn't make noise on my 98 was the Goodyear Gatorback. Don't bother with the rest.
