Default Fan Belt Squeel

Hi,

Had the 407 coupe for a couple of days now and the fan belt has started squeeling a bit. It's not terrible at the moment but is noticeable.

I've checked the belt and it looks in ok condition.
Is there anyway to tell if it needs tightened and if so how to tighten it?

Most likely culprit is the tensioner. With the belt off does it spin freely by hand? (Mine seized and threw the belt off.)

Could just be the belt itself, especially if it only squeals the first thing in the morning and then goes away.... which reminds me, I need to buy an aux belt, as mine is squealing haha

The noise coming from mine is there all the time. It's not really loud at the moment but you do notice it.

Not took the belt off yet to check tensioner.

Is it a job I could do myself
