From what I understood -- which wasn't much because my mechanic was Korean and would start swearing at me whenever I brought the Fiesta in for repair which is understandable if you've ever tried to work in the motor compartment of a 1980s Fiesta -- the alternator spindle/pulley would slow down/seize up or otherwise put friction on the belt. They replaced three belts in three weeks before figuring this out. After replacing the alternator, everything was fine.
