You cannot adjust the belt tension on the alternator, it is automatically adjusted by the automatic tensioner located by the A/C compressor, if it's squealing check the tensioner for sticking, the belt for wear and the pullys for bearing noise.

I don't know about that, like most all cars, you can tighten/loosen the belt by moving the alternator back and forth.

You can adjust the serpentine belt in about 5 mins. get a socket wrench preferably one with a swivel, and losen the top bolt of the alternator located on the back-top of the alternator, dont loosen too much, hard to tighten back up when TB is in the way. take a large prybar, find a solid point to put base of prybar up against, push top of prybar towards rear of vehicle till belt is at desired tension"may take a try or two" hold prybar in place till you can get bolt on alternator tightened. should be all set.

How do you tighten belt onto a new alternator.?

If it is a serpentine belt, the tension is automatically adjusted by the tension idler. If the belt is loose then the tensioner needs replacing. If it is a normal drive belt, then the alternator is mounted on a slotted bracket that allows you to adjust the position of the alternator. You can loosen the bolts and adjust the tension on the belt.
