My apprentice while changing the alternator somehow managed to strip the thread that tensions the belt and just keeps spinning around. Any ideas how to rectify this.

need a new front/rear housing then.

or you could use thinner bolt though it with a spring washer and nut on the other end

a) Change alternator front housing or swap complete alternator.
b) Fit helicoil
c) Drill out and use bolt, nut and spring washer.
