    You dont.

    The main belt that runs from the engine has an automatic tensioner, and the tiny belt that runs the waterpump only goes on one way and is fixed.

    The little belt always appears loose for some reason.

    I suspect that theres just not very much load on it. Its only driving the water pump which cant really draw too much power.

    Whereas the Alternator or PAS pump can draw huge amounts of power from the belt and hence cause the squealing when its not tight.
