Default engine splash guard/2003 Cruiser

I have a 2003 touring edition, silver(I hate silver), purchased used, which was all I could find on short notice after some idiot pulled a left right in front of me and totaled my(also used)black 2001 Deluxe edition. Whenever I'm traveling at decent rate of speed on major highway/interstate and it's raining steadily I experience repeated intermittent belt squealing which sometimes results in the battery icon on dash to light up. I discovered that there should have been an under engine passenger side plastic splash guard which shields the timing? belt/pulley, which was missing when I bought the car. I found a splash guard online and bought one, but I can't figure out how to install it. Does anyone have an installation diagram for this splash shield?

you will need three plastic push pins and three sheet metal (coarse) screws.
its obvious to install just line up the screw holes. help yourself by finding the factory manual PDF and going through it to find the diagrams. i recon you need to get your belt tension sorted out. that's a bit of a challenge but has to be done periodically, and knowing you bought a used and abused car you're going to be doing a lot of maintenance the previous owner didn't do to catch up on. welcome to the forum
