I don't think there is a way to tighten it. The problem is from the tensioner itself that is defective piece of crap. Get it fixed or replaced, try a gator belt, try belt dressing sprays (I think those are crap), or live with it until it goes away and then comes back. I have the same problem as you and mine is fine now that is until it rains again.

I was just going to ask you if you had this problem in the past? If not it could be your serpentine belt is worn. Check it for cracks or wear. I'm sure if that's the case the AEM power pulley will help because it comes with a replacement belt.

the AEM pulley is a good mod regardless. if it helps this problem out too then you just got a 2-for-one - thumbsup
