SOURCE: Saturn Belt Tensioner...
You probably have a bad tensioner, you cannot tighten a bad tensioner because the bearrings inside have gone bad so your belt will just keep coming off. I had the same problem, don't wait to fix this because your car can over heat, you can lose power steering without proper belt tension. Pay the few dollars now(and I do mean few) and avoid problems later.

If the tensioner will not keep the belt tight then the tensioner is bad and will need to be replaced. The spring on the inside will loose it's tension over time.

the tensioner pulley is spring loaded to maintain proper tension constantly.if your belt is loose cracked or frayed,replace it.if tensioner isn't working,replace tensioner assembly.

make you sure are using the right serpentine belt, or looking for another little bit belt , and the other way is damage bearing on the water pump , alternator, power steering , pulleys
