I have a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo and the alternator belt broke. Replaced it, but now the fan is rattling like it is loose. Do I need to buy a new fan? I think when the alternator belt broke that it slapped around and dislodged something to do with the fan. But the fan still spins.

It is likely the fan clutch problem that caused the belt to fail, so in this case yes i would replace the fan clutch. Don't forget to check the water pump, it may also be the source of the noise.
