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.

Loosen the alternator tensioner bolt. You will be able to slide the alternator either way to adjust the tension on the belt.

Both the engine temperature and thermistor for the engine management are located behind the alternator. They can both be readily accessed by removing the top adjustment bolt of the alternator, removing the serpentine belt and pivoting the alternator towards the rear of the firewall.

Remove the belt from the alternator. The belt can be removed by loosening the belt tensioner. Remove the wiring harness from the alternator. Remove the cables from the alternator. Remove the retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new alternator.
