do you still have ac on the car?

if it is the alternator then you should be able to tighten the belt. if that doesnt work then just repace it. they are pretty cheap at the parts store.

If it's a stock drive pulley you probably just need to tighten or replace the belt. If a pulley has been replaced, check that the pulleys are aligned quite closely in the same plane side to side or there will be noise. If necessary replace the pulley or shift the alternator.
