SOURCE: chatter when turning
The serpentine belt should not have to be tightened because ther is a tensioner to keep it taught. If it feels loose then you need to check the tensioner and also see if the belt stretched. I hope this helps.

When I see this happen in my shop we look carefully at all the pulleys to verify the bearings are turning smoothly and that there is no play in them.
The pulleys need to be parallel with each other and not tilted.
Not sure what year yours is or the engine size so I can't tell your setup.
Drive belt systems can also have automatic tensioners that wear on the pivot. This also allows the tensioner to tilt into the tension.
One of yours is doing this. No other reason for it.
Hope your repair goes well.
Best of the festive season to you.
