it is normal for the belt to be a little on the left side but not far enough to where it rides on the actually outside. most shops just replace the belt, they dont do the whole kit unless you ask them to! so im pretty sure the tensioner need to be replaces or tightened

if it rubbed that bad i would even ask the to do the belt again! you dont know the stress it made, might snap after a few thousand miles
