Just three months afer I replaced the belts, the alternator and its tensioning bracket (which was bent), I am facing again the same problem. I noticed that the two v-belts were loose and that the long tensioning screw is slightly bent. The three bolts supporting the alternator are still tight and the belts seem in good condition still.

What is the correct procedure in tensioning the alternator? Do I back-off the tension screw after I have tensioned the belts and tightened the support bolts? Or should it remain tight?
