is the belt old or contaminated?
is the PS pump good?
have you tried belt dressing / wd-40?

The only belt that's ever given me trouble is the alternator, and that's probably because the PS pump is leaking on it :loser:

If your going to use WD-40 use it VERY lightly.

cleans the pullies and lubricates the belt a bit.

WD40 won't do anything but make the belt slip. It's primary purpose is a lubricant/cleaner, don't forget. If the belt is that loose, get a new one. If the new one is loose, you'll have to do a custom resize, meaning going down a couple numbers lower on the belt size. Every letter and number in a belt part number means something, you can choose smaller sizes to fit the application better. The parts store guys could explain it better than I can. ;)
