I would double check the belt routing.

Did you check the pulleys for wear and or belt tensioner? Remove the belt again and spin the pulleys by hand, should only rotate one revolution.. If they spin freely or none at all and make a crunching noise, it's time to replace.

I agree with Tom. Oh something else to check is the harmonic balancer. I had a Mitsubishi the other day that we could not locate what was making all the noise. All new belts and pulleys. Turned out to be the rubber in the harmonic balancer. Harmonic balancer was going bad.

Currently the belt is loose cuz my tensioner is at it limit. And the pulley are fine.

Oh ok. Double check belt routing and also double check that they give you the right belt.
