if it is a really loud screeching sound then it means the belt is too loose suggesting like brad said that you may have a problem with your belt tensioner. also make sure the belt is in the grooves on the pulley's correctly.

You may not even have to do that. I have never removed on on the 3.1's but on the V8's I've worked on it is just the one center bolt that needs to be removed and then the arm will come off. If the bolt is too long, you will then have to remove it from the wheel well.

Another good thing is that I think that is a fairly cheap part from the dealer! :eek:
