Maybe the belt tension is too tight. This very same thing happen to me on a 92 Jeep Cherokee.

Is the belt the right belt ? Length , width and design Check your routing If you did not move any components ( fly wheel ???? ) then look at the belt. looks like you got to change the belt again anyway get a belt from a dealership
