You don't tighten a serpentine belt. The tension is controlled by a tensioner. If it is loose, then the belt has stretched and needs replacing.

Theres a video demo on you tube detailing how.

It should have an automatic tensioner, and no adjustment is provided.

You don't. Serpentine belts are adjusted by a spring loaded device called a belt tensioner. If you belt is loose, then the tensioner is broken.

You don't, they have a tension pulley that does that automatically. If the belt is too loose, the pulley most likely has to be replaced. Thecommi ::: The serpentine belt is held by tention with a automatic belt tensioner. If the serpentine belt is loose, you will most likely have to replace the entire belt tensioner assembly. the assembly comes with a new pully.

Honda Man'sThere is no manual way to tighten the belt. The serpentine belt tensioner is spring loaded and requires no adjustment. If the belt is too loose replacing the belt tensioner will be required. it should tighten automaticly,you may need to replace the tensioner

If you're certain that the sound is from the serpentine belt you should check the belt tensioner. A weak tensioner spring will result in slipping and a noisy belt.

You don't. The belt tension is automatically adjusted via a spring loaded tensioner. If the serpentine belt is noisy or worn out prematurely. replace the tensioner. The belt should be inspected for cracks and other signs of wear. Replace worn out belt(s) before they break leaving you stranded.

I would suspect that the belt tensioner is weak. If there are a lot of miles on the car I would replace it. I hope this helps you. Mark

The sway bar is not adjustable, but you can replace the bushings.
