I don't know if its just me but installing the ac belt is harder than replacing the alt, waterpump, ect. Even with the special tool. Good thing I don't have to do it again, drive it till it snap then I will change it.
I checked that out and the alt was nice and tight to the bracket. Don't wait till ur belt snaps cause it can damage a hose or somethin like wat happened to me,
