Just got my 13 optima sxl turbo back from engine replacement a few days ago. Today turning it on I heard squealing. Open the hood and see the serpentine belt is on, but slightly off track and rubbing the side of the engine causing the squeal.
Is this fine to ride on, or should I call them up and get the car back in? Or an easy fix? I tried to pull it back on more but yea that thing is too tight to pull lol

It's on incorrectly. You need to loosen the tensioner with a wrench and put it on the pulley correctly.
