Squeaky Belts :/

I just replaced my water pump, and after re-installing the power steering belt and the alternator to A/C compressor, every time I start her up it squeaks for a little bit and it's reallllly loud. Already tried the bar of soap trick. Anything else?

One of the belts might be too tight. Try to narrow down where the noise is coming from. I've seen quite a few alternator belts get tightened too much and squeak like crazy.

I tightened the power steering a little more, but as for the alternator belt, I'm not sure how to get to it to tension it. ('94 Prelude Si)
