annoying squeak

hi when i got the 316 the bloke said that it squeaks because the belt needed tightning anyway i tensioned it up as much as is possible and it still squeaks

so i had anouther tinka with it today and it looks like the belt is slightly twisted from the manual tensioner to the alternator.looking at it now i think it is missing a spacer or washer?

could someone tell me ifthis should have a washer or spacer or maybe include a picture so i could look thanks

ive added a pic to show where the manual tensioner is thanks.
