If the belt doesn't fit it'* likely because you haven't routed the belt correctly. I assume the pulley is the same size as the original?

Look on the radiator support or top cover for a diagram of the belt routing and follow that. You do know that the tensioner can be rotated to allow the belt to put on?

Cheers,

New belts can be tough. Try it again after leaving the belt out in the direct sunlight for awhile.
